Keel bone damage COST Action

KBD in different languages

 

Welcome to the website of the Keel Bone Damage COST Action, a group focused on coordinating research and dissemination activities towards the overall goal of understanding the causes of keel bone damage and providing various stakeholders of Europe and the world the information to reduce its occurrence.    If you have an interest in the topic or would benefit from our efforts, please be sure to get in touch with our coordinator and let us know by clicking here.  While the group is European-focused, we have participants from around the world, so all you need is an interest in the topic!

There are many ways to be involved from attending meetings to planning future experiments or attending Training Schools where participants can learn specific skills. For those who may not have time for commitment, you can also elect to keep aware of our activities by receiving occasional updates and/or requests for information.  Please explore our website and learn about what we do and be sure to let us know you were here!
