Communication and dialogue between the experts of the project team and the ones in the reference group pave the way for getting the best possible results out of the project. Involving the public facilitates the measures and might even improve them, as the public oftentimes have knowledge which is of great use. Networking is challenging in times of a pandemic, why it is highly valued, both to arrange digital events and to give presentations of the project at digital meetings and conferences. Below, the activities of dialogue are listed. For more information about each and every one, such as PowerPoint presentations or other documentation, please contact us.
