European Bat Detector Workshops
Field training in practical bat detector work



The European Bat Detector Workshop has traditionally be organized in connection to the European Bat Research Symposium. However, from 2011 there is no practice that the symposium organizers also organize the workshop.
The aim of the workshops is to get field training in practical bat work. This includes the use of various detectors, and capture techniques.

Also other Pan-European workshops are included on this web page.


 


 

FUTURE WORKSHOPS

The event will be organized in Bidarrai (the Basque country) just on the French side of the Spanish border, only 76 km from the conference in Donostia (San Sebastián). The workshop will start on the same evening as the European Bat Research Symposium in Donostia ends, allowing people to travel directly from one event to the other.
