FEMS Member Society since 2011
SIMTREA was formed on 15 February 1994 in Milan (Italy). The Italian Society of Agro-Food and Environmental Microbiology (SIMTREA) is a nonprofit membership organization for scientists who work in the fields of agricultural, environmental and food microbiology. It has about 246 members coming from universities, industry and research institutions. Since 2011, SIMTREA organizes the International biennial Conference on Microbial Diversity (the MD series with the first being the MD-2011 Conference) aimed to promote discussion and exchange of information and experiences regarding the complexity intrinsic in microbial biodiversity.
From January 2024, all but one of the FEMS journals will become fully open access (OA), with one journal, FEMS Microbiology Letters remaining a subscription journal and free to publish in with OA options. Open access is key to supporting the FEMS mission of disseminating high quality research as widely as possible: when high quality, peer reviewed sound science is open access, anyone, anywhere in the world with an internet connection, can read it.
