What will happen? 

An informal, interactive day focused on developing interdisciplinary cooperation and exploring transdisciplinary opportunities. We will have a fieldtrip with a ranger, share our experiences with short inspiring presentations, and have an interactive "speed dating" session, all while enjoying the nature and scientific atmosphere.

Wait...but why?
First, exchange with peers is essential for research quality and network building. Second, learning to link projects with stakeholders and policy makers in early phases is highly beneficial for impact of your research. Third, ... well it's just fun to meet new people working on similar topics, outside of your office. 

So, please register by 25 September. We welcome contributions on nature and society interactions, ecosystem services, natural capital, trade-offs, conflicts and solutions in spatial planning and broad related issues from all disciplines and projects.
