28-29 November 2023, Grand Hotel, Lund, Sweden
Our new EU Horizon project RestPoll (Restoring pollinator habitats across European agricultural landscapes based on multi-actor participatory approaches) was launched in October 2023. I really enjoyed meeting the RestPoll members in person at the kick-off meeting in Lund, Sweden, and discussing our next steps in the project. The meeting included introductions of the seven project work packages and interactive sessions in break-out groups where we discussed the topics ‘policy engagement’, ‘living labs’, and ‘co-design’. We also discussed joint methods in the natural sciences and the social sciences.
On the second day of the RestPoll kick-off meeting we participated in a guided tour through the green houses at the Botanical Garden in Lund and enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Grand Hotel.
It was a very successful, motivating and productive event and I look forward to the upcoming workshops, the field season 2024 and working with farmers, landowners and partners from industry. The next RestPoll AGM is scheduled for November 2024 in Freiburg, Germany.
