WP 0 – Co-ordination and management

Lead: UFZ, participating Agroscope, BOKU, UPM, IMDEA, VU, UPM

WP 0 coordinates and manages the smooth running of TALE and the efficient communication between the partners, as well as the dissemination of the results. To develop the science-policy dialog, TALE established an advisory board with seven stakeholders representing regional and state agencies for nature conservation, agriculture and the environment, farmer associations and science.

So far two project meetings took place:

The kick-off meeting in Leipzig (Germany) in July 2015 (1st-2nd) was the first activity within the project. The focus of the meeting was to set a timeline for the individual steps within the project and to specify the research organisation for the work packages.

The second project meeting took place in April 2016 (24th-27th) in Vienna (Austria). First results such as the policy analysis (WP1), stakeholder guidelines (WP3), the model set-up (WP 2 and 4) and the case study comparison (WP5) were discussed. Moreover, a stakeholder event was organised with lectures by the project members Prof. Dr. Martin Volk and Prof. Dr. Peter Verburg.

A newspaper article and a blog post emerged from the project meeting (in German only)
