Think tank: Bundling the Alps-wide expertise on ecological networks

As the Continuum Initiative decided to focus on further connectivity activities with long-term issues, the Continuum partners are now aiming at the preparation of follow-up projects beyond ECONNECT to ensure that the fundaments built up during this project can be used for further concerted implementation projects.
Such new projects have to be developed referring to the existing expertise on ecological networks and followed up by integrating available scientific and practical experts into such a process. In this context, the Continuum Partners have established a think tank on ecological networks which gathers most of the available expertise in Alpine countries. The think tank is explicitly no new structure or network. It is a pool of experts who cooperate in a problem and result oriented way.
The think thank will start its activities in 2010 with three workshops on specific topics, which have been elaborated at the first expert workshop on the second of December in Chamonix/France. 26 experts from all Alpine countries followed the invitation by the Continuum Initiative to express their needs and expectations in relation to a "think tank" on Alpine ecological networks.
The think tank concept is available on www.alpine-ecological-network.org/about-us. If you are interested in contributing to the think tank, please contact Thomas Scheurer: [email protected]
