SBSP is turning 15 years! The Scandinavian-Baltic Society for Parasitology (SBSP) was founded in June 2003 in Bergen, Norway, by fusion of Scandinavian Society for Parasitology (est. 1967) and Baltic Society for Parasitology (est. 1993).
In 2003, the first president of SBSP Karl Skírnisson wrote: "This joining of our societies is expected to have valuable advantages in fu¬ture years with e.g. increased membership numbers, better scientific communication and improved cooperation between colleagues working in the Scandinavian and the Baltic countries."
Gediminas Valkiunas wrote:
"We believe that the joint Scandinavian-Baltic Society for Parasitology will provide additional opportunities for parasitologist in Scandinavian and Baltic countries to meet each other and to work together on joint projects."
It sure has done that! We are happy and proud of our society that has become truly international. Roots in the two parent societies, we are growing and blossoming! /Pikka
