    My name is Conny (Cornelia) Sattler, and I am a researcher at Macquarie University in Sydney, collaborating with Dr Theotime Colin and Prof Andrew Barron on the project "Best Practices for Evaluation of Bee Health Technology." In our project, we aim to understand the needs and expectations of the industry and the challenges in using sensor technologies in beehives. To achieve this, we are conducting an online survey to gather information from beekeepers and growers using pollination services.

    I am reaching out to inquire if you could kindly share the invitation for our online survey with beekeepers who may be interested in participating. More information about the project and the online survey is available on the following website:

    Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Best regards, Conny
