One aim of our WP3 research trials is to improve our understanding of trade-offs and synergies associated with the management of PG for Ecosystem service delivery in a wide range of contexts and socio-economic circumstances.
In December 2020 and January 2021, Partners involved in T3.3 participated in a webinar series to present preliminary findings from their trials so far. During the series, a total of 51 presentations were given by the following partners; ADAS (UK), University of Newcastle upon Tyne (UK), Agri-food & Biosciences Institute (UK), The Northern Ireland Agricultural Research and Development Council, Grand Est Regional Chamber Of Agriculture (FR), Normandy Chambers Of Agriculture (FR), Hungarian Academy Of Sciences, University of Cordoba (ES), Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (CH), Mendel University (CZ), The Research Institutes of Wageningen University (NL), The University of Turin (IT), Georg-August-University Göttingen (DE), Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Consulai (PT). The participating partners presented findings on a wide range of topics, including diverse species, sward species for ecosystem services, virtual fencing and GPS collars, grass measurement, Ecosystem services, nutrient management and education.
In addition, we held another webinar on the 11th February 2021, at which Piotr Stypiński spoke on Biebrza National Park and “The possibility of using horses (Polish Koniks) in the environmentally friendly management on the nature protected areas”. Marija Klopčič also gave a presentation on results and experiences with using GPS sensors for dairy/suckler cows on Slovenian mountain pastures.
