ACTION F.2 – Networking with other LIFE and/or non-LIFE projects
To ensure dissemination and exchange of new knowledge and experiences gathered in other similar projects a proactive approach will be taken. We will organize four international thematic workshops that will produce best-practice guides on the following topics:
(1) Using molecular genetics in brown bear conservation,
(2) The value of bears and how it shapes social carrying capacity,
(3) Human –bear conflict prevention, and
(4) Bear feeding: pros and cons.
Two experience exchange trips will be organized to visit LIFE08 NAT/RO/000500 and LIFE07 NAT/IT/000502 projects. Finally, during the last year of the project an international thematic conference will be organized. The conference will last three days out of which two days will be devoted to presentations and one day to a fieldtrip. Special attention will be given to the attendance of experts from the countries with which we share the bear population and are not participating in this project (Balkan countries).
