ECBA is active in supporting her member organizations in organizing activities.

riga2008In several European countries there is no general organisation for Biologists. Amazingly this includes coutries like France. The ECBA is willing to support the eshtablishment of national biologistst organisations.

In November 2008 the ECBA organised a meeting in Riga (Latvia) to support the establishment of a Baltic Biologist organisation. Unfortunately the economic crises provided a major setback for the organisation, but the process is still ongoing.
