Legal notice

Following the request of representatives of the Neobiota Board at the Antalya Neobiota Conference in November 2014, Christian Ries, representative of Luxembourg in the Neobiota Council, proceeded to the setup of this website on November 15th 2014. It was launched under its final domain name on January 30th 2015. The website uses the Open Source project WordPress as a content management system and is hosted by the National Museum of Natural History Luxembourg on its servers in Luxembourg. Until January 2015, the Neobiota website was hosted by the University TU Berlin at

The domain name has been reserved several years ago by Mr. Markus Grabher, head of UMG Umweltbüro Grabher at Bregenz in Austria, to prevent a commercial use and preserve it for a dedicated use. Mr. Grabher offered and transferred this domain name without conditions to the Neobiota Board in January 2014, for which the Board is very thankful.
