Completion of the synthesis report on the findings of alpKnowhow

The synthesis report on the findings from the alpKnowhow research phase of Future in the Alps has now been complemented with two appendices and is available online (Knowledge Database navigation item). In the Glossary the keywords relating to the six topic areas addressed by Future in the Alps have been translated into the four main languages of the Alps. Open research questions have been added as a second appendix. These are questions which arose during the project preparations or as part of the work by the team of experts. CIPRA now wants to encourage the scientific community to develop new projects in these areas.
