ASTRA project Meeting Tampere, February 15-17, 2007

Pirkanmaa Regional Environmental Centre
Tampere, Finland

The purpose of the workshop is to discuss ongoing project activities, to identify and possibly clarify problems. These tasks should be discussed in an open manner among the project group and critical feedback from outsiders (stakeholders) is most welcome. This procedure has proven to be rather successfull in the SEAREG project. Therefore the project partners should summarize their activities that are ongoing and describe how they are related to the project's framework and which results are expected for the next conference.
