  • Beehives on the roofs of the UPVD
Thanks to a dozen beehives already present on the agricultural estate, the IUT students, accompanied by a professional beekeeper, produce and market organic labelled honey.

To promote biodiversity on campus, three new hives will be installed on the roof of the University Library in November 2019, representing a colony of 90,000 bees. This project is carried out by students of the IUT but also by UPVD agents. The swarms will be placed in the spring of 2020, the hives and their environment having to be arranged before the arrival of the bees. A webcam will be installed inside and the images will be broadcast on a dedicated website so that everyone can follow the life of the bees.
