About the Beekeeping Academy of Slovenia

Slovenians have a centuries-old beekeeping tradition, on which all of Slovenia's modern beekeeping expertise and insights are based. The Slovenian Beekeeping Academy (BAS) contributes to the distribution of extensive beekeeping expertise in Slovenia, both domestically and internationally. BAS was established in 2018 in response to expressed interest from a number of countries in the transfer of Slovenian beekeeping expertise, competencies, and practices to other countries. BAS aims to expand beekeeping knowledge through non-formal education, to encourage Slovenian educational institutions in the field of beekeeping, and to distribute new knowledge in both the national and international environments.
