Final OpenNESS Annual Meeting in Smolenice, Slovakia

OpenNESS prepares for its first cross work package workshop

The first OpenNESS cross work package meeting will be held at Loch Leven, Kinross, Scotland from 21 to 24 October 2013. It will focus on the interaction of the OpenNESS case studies with its methodological work packages (WP1-4). The problems defined in the case studies will be matched to the methods.

In order to be able to develop a coordinated case study programme, which will be used to analyse the application of the ecosystem services and natural capital concepts in concrete management and decision-making situations, the workshop strives to meet the following objectives:

  • clarify the demand for tools and supply of OpenNESS expertise, and  produce a work plan for each case study for the coming 12 months;
  • agree a set of evaluation criteria to judge the merits of the concepts and methods tested in the case studies; and
  • ground-testing conceptual frameworks.

Next to the main programme, a list of pop-up meetings will allow for discussing specific subjects, tools or methodologies. Some members of OPERAs will also attend the workshop, in order to familiarize with and streamline both projects.
