The topics comprised the public perception of issues of research into protected areas, new technologies on visitor information in national parks, and the question of how the rising flood of data can be more effectively channelled into knowledge. Existing projects such as Habitalp and Aquilalp.net provided a further insight into current research co-operation.
The research symposium was made possible by the Interreg IIIB project ALPENCOM. ALPENCOM networks managers of alpine protected areas and allows the development of joint PR concepts.
