In order for you to stay in touch with the EED society during the period leading up to the conference, we organize a series of online webinars on hot topics in evo-devo, designed to create awareness and interest for many of the themes that will be discussed at the conference.
Please note that the Zoom room will open 5 min before the webinar.
