A WG4 meeting has concluded at the Triglav National Park (TNP) Info Centre Dom Trenta, Na Logu in Trenta, Slovenia. The workshop was convened to take forward the capacity building elements of our work programme, both in relation to the agreed Proof of Concept study, and the wider needs of the proposed future European Raptor Sampling Programme (ERSamP).
A cross-WG meeting held at BTO Scotland, Stirling, UK has concluded. The meeting reviewed current Action progress and developed further the Proof of Concept case study, building on ideas outlined at the meetings in Thessaloniki and Florence.
The Second ERBFacility General Meeting (GM2), the Third Management Committee Meeting (MC3) and a WG4 Meeting were held at La Specola Museum, Florence, Italy from 5-8 March 2019.
WG4 concluded a successful meeting in Thessaloniki, Greece, back-to-back with the workshop on prioritisation of species, to address Task 4.3 on development of best practice guidance and protocols for raptor sampling and field data capture. Approximately 30 participants drawn largely from the field arena attended the meeting.
A meeting (4-6 February 2019) involving around 30 representatives from all four Working Groups, addressing the prioritisation of compounds, raptor species, and tissue matrices for biomonitoring with raptors has concluded successfully in Thessaloniki, Greece.
