The LANDSUPPORT General Assembly 2019 was held in Balatongyörök, Hungary, hosted by project local partners University of Pannonia and Zala County.
All LANDSUPPORT partners from all corners of the world (Europe, North Africa and Malaysia) met for the first time after the Kickoff meeting in Naples, in May 2018. Thus, a full project year has already passed by, and the GA was the occasion to get together, present the results of the different work packages and work together on the next steps.
During the GA, the LANDSUPPORT consortium launched the Land-Take tool and its Graphical User Interface. It is the first of a series of tools which will compose the LANDSUPPORT DSS platform, and it specifically addresses land take issues, whereas other LANDSUPPORT tools which will be launched throughout the project will address different issues linked to land use, agriculture, forestry and environment.
Activities during the GA included plenary sessions, working group discussions and even a full-day field trip, where participants could put their hands on practical soil and land management issues in the beautiful setting of the lake Balaton and the surrounding Zala County. A video troupe followed the event for the three days, and the videos will be released soon – stay tuned if you don’t want to miss them!
