11th International Workshop on Agglutinated Foraminifera
will take place 19 - 22nd of April 2023.
Our mission is to support research and education in the field of Micropaleontology
...through our publications, training courses, research collections, and library. We work closely with the Micropaleontological Press Foundation in New York, publishers of the scientific journals Micropaleontology and Stratigraphy and the “Ellis & Messina” catalogues of microfossils.
Our vision is to produce our own high-quality publications, and maintain a comprehensive reference and learning centre for the benefit of our micropaleontological community. We maintain a library of micropaleontological publications and a museum of micropaleontological collections.
Europe's newest reference centre for Micropalaeontology
Micropress Europe has its office on the campus of the AGH University of Science & Technology in Kraków, Poland. Kraków is a university town with the greatest concentration of students studying earth sciences, and was home to some of the forefathers of modern micropalaeontology: Grzybowski, Bieda, Geroch, and Luczkowska were all linked to this town.
from the services we provide to our collections and facilites.
We now publish the “Grzybowski Foundation Special Publications”, and we act as an agent for subscriptions to Micropaleontology, Stratigraphy, and the Ellis & Messina Catalogues. We publish books, e-books and other occasional publications in the field of micropalaeontology.
We offer a range of micropaleontological services, including sample preparation (sediment disaggregation, acid dissolution, sieving), microscope slide preparation (sample picking), and microfossil analyses (microfossil identification, zonal assignment, age determination), at competitive prices.
We provide logistical support for the International School on Foraminifera,Urbino. At MPE we organise individual or small-group training courses for trainees from industry or academia. Our facility can also be used to host small ad-hoc meetings and workshops.
Our microfossil collections are growing. Our offices house the “European Micropaleontological Reference Centre”, which provides a permanent archive for published microfossil collections.
We have the only up-to-date paper copy of the Ellis & Messina Catalogue of Foraminifera in Eastern Europe in addition to a selection of other journals.
We are located in the heart of the historical city of Krakow, Poland. Our offices are housed at the AGH, University of Science and Technology.
