International Symposium on Insects as Feed, Food and Non-Food

INSECTA 2020 goes to 2021

As a main characteristic the INSECTA conference provides an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and discussions to topics around the use of insects. Participants from all relating disciplines and from all over the world ensure the success of our conference. Not everyone will have the possibility to travel or would like to meet groups of people due to health risks caused by corona virus in this year, even if the scheduled date is set in a few months.

Well-being and ensuring the health of our participants and organizers are very important to us. For these reasons we will not hold INSECTA conference this year and postpone it by one year. Nevertheless we are looking forward to the future with hope and are planning a next INSECTA conference for September 8th and 9th, 2021 in Magdeburg.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcome you to INSECTA 2021 in Magdeburg. We would be happy to keep in touch with you and look forward to answering all your questions.
