The 'Fresh Blood for Fresh Water' is a community meeting of early-career limnologists, representing not just new incomers to the field, but also those who still (or forever) feel themselves “fresh blood”. The conference aims to provide a friendly atmosphere to meet, to present the new results and exchange ideas with other young researchers.

This community (as any other ecological community) functions and performs best in case of high diversity; therefore, we encourage you to join the next FBFW’19 meeting in Tihany and be part of the community!

Please follow the news here on the home page, on Facebook, Twitter & ResearchGate. Hope to welcome you all in April 2019!
