In the 157th year of the publication of Darwin’s groundbreaking work “On the Origin of Species”, EvoKE hosted the first European meeting aiming to promote “EVOlutionary Knowledge for Everyone” that was held from February 6th to 8th, 2017 in Porto, Portugal.

The three day conference was structured around five plenary talks and several break-out sessions where participants exchanged ideas on all aspect of evolutionary research, education, and outreach and actively worked together to further activities in all theses areas.

On the first day, participants discussed the following topics in several break-out sessions (a more detailed description of all break-out sessions can be found here):

On the second day, participants formed collaborative teams to think about and develop evolutionary projects in any of several different important areas.

The third and final day was dedicated to summarising the key thoughts of these working groups to all delegates and to chart the way forward for these collaborative projects.
