ZOO Research Symposium 2023

Darwinzaal, A Room with A ZOO - Antwerp ZOO Hosted by Antwerp ZOO Centre for Research and Conservation (CRC)

We are happy to announce our 16th Annual ZOO Research Symposium that will take place on Friday 1 December 2023.


You can join the symposium in-person in the Darwin Hall in ZOO Antwerpen, or online via the livestream. This year our PhD-student Daan Laméris will defend his thesis at the ZOO Research Symposium. Therefore all the presentations are related to Daan’s study about measuring welfare and emotions in bonobos.

The symposium is free to attend, but we kindly ask you to register (until November 28, 2023) and choose between join in-person, or join online. Registrations for the symposium are closed.
