LOOKING INTO THE PAST TO SEE THE FUTURE OF BIOSPEOLOGY
 
100 years of Biospeology at the 1st Institute of Speleology in the world

In 1920, Emil Racovitza was invited by the Transylvanian authorities to be a professor at the newly reorganized University in Cluj. He accepted with several conditions, one of which was the founding of an Institute of Speleology under his supervision in Cluj and with its own budget. The speleological enterprise started in 1920. After 100 years we are happy to invite you to Romania to show where we are, as an Institute, in 2020, although during the communist period the Institute changed its headquarter in București. 

The conference has many facets, one encompasses the scientific and the historical dimensions and others are about the beauties of karst and caves in Transylvania, our traditions, food, and wines.
