11/2016 Cross-Project Meeting and Travellab in Zvolen, Slovakia
The first project meeting was organised in Zvolen (Slovakia) on 8-10 November 2016. The project meeting sessions were accompanied by “Travellab”, an innovative format for cross-regional learning and knowledge transfer. It combines the conventional field excursion with round table discussions with local stakeholders and follow up sessions in order to better understand the local context and improve knowledge about current and alternative forest management models (FMMs) and their implementation.
The Department of Forest and Nature Conservation Policy at Georg-August-University Göttingen, Germany, which leads work package four, co-ordinates the research efforts to enhance implementation of alternative forest management models in the case study areas and beyond, organised the workshop “Forest Policy Issues & Actor Networks in the Case Studies” from 26-30 September 2016.
