Graduate Associate

Graduate Associates are graduate students or research assistants who are supervised or co-supervised by a BEEc Faculty Associate. Their contribution to research and BEEc activities by attending, participating in and/or supporting the organization of workshops, conferences and other events, drives BEEc's ability to create a hub of bee research.
