The RECARE training on Stakeholder Interaction was successfully closed Friday September 19th.
The 24 international participants from the RECARE teams worked together for the whole week '...in an intense, mutual learning process with you on how to best set up the first series of stakeholder workshops at your respective sites. Thank you for being “fully present”, and for all your valuable comments and suggestions!' - said workshop co-organiser Thomas Caspari.
The workshop program was filled with WP4, WP5 and WP9 and WP11 training activities from Monday until Friday. On Wednesday the Dutch Case Study of Olden Eibergen was visited.
The wealth of training material and documentation can be downloaded from the Stakeholder Interaction overview page after logging in. The second stage of the Stakeholder Interaction Training will be given around March/April 2015.
