This year’s revisited format will be in the form of : two half days the 21st & 22nd of October from 9am to noon, French Guiana time, UTC -03:00, online.

Conferences will be for the most part in English in order to facilitate exchanges with the international community.

Workshop, concert and exhibit: your other happening around the main event

This year, the Annual Meeting had several planned events happening in parallel to the main, scientific event.

We are adapting those to the new, online format for this year’s event! If you want to attend these events, please let us know in the registration form so we can work on online versions.

Delphine Zigoni and Julien Norwood, two naturalist artists will lead a two-hour workshop to teach the basics of naturalist drawing. This class is organized in partnership with the EAG (French Guiana art school) and the BUG scientific project, carried by the EcoFoG laboratory. Two sessions are planned on October, 20th:

  • . 8.45 – 10.45
  • . 10.45 – 12.45

Currently, the classes are in an in-person format for people who are in French Guiana during the events. But we will be able to propose an online workshop on request. Write us for more detail and register to the workshop.

The Forward Project joins the Annual Meeting 2021

The Forward project aims at boosting the visibility and innovation capacity at the local, national and European scale of the nine Outermost Regions of the European Union. These nine outermost regions are:

Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Saint-Martin, Réunion island, Mayotte, Canary Islands, the Azores and Madeira

The project fosters communication between the outermost regions in order to initiate region-wide applications for upcoming calls launched by the European Commission in the areas of research and innovation.

The Territorial Collectivity of French Guiana (CTG) is closely involved in this initiative for all aspects relating to outreach and communication and designs and implements the project’s communication strategy. As such, collaborators of the project within the CTG will give a presentation of FORWARD that will be followed by an open discussion to allow scientist to express their needs in relation to the European calls for proposal.

Locally, Guyane Developpement Innovation (GDI) and the University of French Guiana are also partners of the program.
