BioSyst EU aims to provide a European platform to:

  • hold joint meetings on a regular basis;
  • promote research, teaching, and training in all areas of systematic biology, including phylogenetic, taxonomic, and biodiversity research;
  • encourage collaboration and interchange among researchers, both individually and through their respective societies and institutions;
  • coordinate national and international efforts without infringing on the autonomy of the member societies;
  • encourage formation of additional national systematic societies, while continuing to represent systematists in countries still lacking formal societies;
  • increase the profile and funding of systematic biology in the European parliament.
