Welcome to the 9th International Moose Symposium in Joensuu, Finland between 24. - 28.8.2020.

Since the Quebec meeting of 1973, the International Moose Symposium has brought together researchers and practitioners across the northern hemisphere to discuss and present the latest research and news on one of the most iconic northern ungulate: moose. This year, for the very first time, the symposium will be organized in Finland by Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) and University of Eastern Finland (UEF). The town of Joensuu is located in North Karelia, a district characterized by thousands of lakes and endless forests. The exact venue is the building Metria at University of Eastern Finland's Joensuu Campus: right here!

The symposium themes will cover a broad range of topics including, but not limited to:

    • Diseases and zoonoses
    • Moose population management and monitoring
    • Moose and forestry
    • Movements and habitat use
    • Predator-prey interactions
    • Human dimensions
    • Genetics and physiology
    • Life history


We are happy to announce travel awards for students / seniors. Guidelines for applying are available from here.
