The Society

The Ethologische Gesellschaft is a non-profit organization, founded with the aim of supporting behavioural research in science and teaching. It was founded on 10. October 1978 in Basel (Switzerland). At the meeting 116 members were present, and the society now has about 400 members, most of whom are from German-speaking countries (Austria, Germany, Switzerland) and the Netherlands.

Anyone who is or was a researcher in behavioural biology is welcome to join the society. The society also welcomes members who want to financially or intellectually support the aims of the society.

Twice a year the society publishes its booklet EthoNews, which is sent to all members as pdf by email. It includes sections on internal matters, research/perspectives, projects/meetings as well as abstracts from bachelor-, master- and Ph.D. theses.

Every second year the society awards the prestigious Niko Tinbergen Award to outstanding  investigators in animal behaviour research. Furthermore, the society supports financially small research projects; projects of new researchers, and attendance at its own and other conferences, and is involved in organizing the biannual European Conference on Behavioural Biology (ECBB). The society organizes an annual meeting on specific topics, and together with the German Zoological Society, an annual meeting for Masters and PhD students.
