The superordinate objective is the realisation of ecological and economical beekeeping for plant pollination and the production of high quality bee products.
A practical objective for apicultural counselling is: every beekeeper knows the Good Apicultrual Practice. Other objectives are: professional harvesting of honey and the maintainance of healthy bee colonies.
The aim of the activity of the Swiss Bee Research Centre is to meet the expectations of practical beekeeping and of other important institutions and interest groups of the country. The Swiss Bee Research Centre carries out field and laboratory trials for practical application in beekeeping. Also, it collects scientific know-how by national and international networking.
