B-THENET: Thematic Network “Best Practices and Innovations for a Sustainable Beekeeping”
The B-THENET Thematic Network implements a multi-actor (MA) approach to modernise the EU beekeeping sector, sharing knowledge that is ready to be put into practice, while fostering innovation and digitalisation. The project started in Sept 2022 and will run for 4 years.
EU Bee Partnership Operational Platform
After developing the Bee Hub Proof of Concept and the EU Bee Partnership (EUBP) Prototype Platform on Bee Health, the EUBP Operational Platform project (coordinated by BeeLife, developing the EU Pollinator Hub) was launched in 2022.
The overall aim of the 2 year project is to help beekeepers, scientists, and farmers with openly accessible data related to bees and pollinators.
The project responds to the needs identified and called for by the EU Bee Partnership.
The overarching objective of the project, which started in Sept 2022 and will run for 10 months, is to contribute to the further advancement of the environmental risk assessment (ERA) of chemicals for insect pollinators, in order to address current risk assessment challenges and ensure preparedness for future challenges.
The project will develop a roadmap that will provide a guide for the transition process from a single substance, single-use ERA to a systems approach ERA for insect pollinators.
EU Bee Lovers
The EU Bee Lovers is a promotion project (2022-2024) supported by the European Commission to raise awareness about the importance of bees, pollinators, the importance of bee-friendly farming, and the consumption of European honey.
BeeLife led the development of the EU Bee Partnership Prototype Platform on Bee Health. A new online platform to centralise and visualise data related to pollinators. The platform is inspired on BeeLife's original platform development, The Bee Hub.
BeeLife was a partner of the EU-funded project The Internet of Bees (IoBee) (2017-2020).
The project aimed at disrupting the beehive digital monitoring market by developing and improving cutting-edge digital monitoring systems for beehives and pollinators, paired with a spatial decision support system (SDSS).
