The network BioFrankfurt was founded in 2004 and comprises currently 16 institutions. Their main objectives are:
- to attract notice to the outstanding impact of biodiversity and its conservation for human welfare, culture, and health
- to increase efficiency by bundeling the knowledge and experience of all participating institutions through cooperation and information transfer
- to publicise the exceptional commitment of institutions located in the Frankfurt area, especially in the areas of research, protection and education
Activities of BioFrankfurt include various regional communication and education projects. For further information see the “Activities” section.
