Why did we establish the YNN?

Following the Virtual Nematology Conference in May of 2021 (VNC2021), we recognized that few opportunities exist for young nematologists to participate in networking events, seminars, short courses, and workshops that can be attended remotely. Therefore, we established the YNN with the support of Geert Smant and the European society of Nematologists.

The YNN is established and currently organized by a joint effort of several early career nematologists from different countries and universities.
