After intense final weeks, ERASMUS+ TRAIN#ER project has completed its results. We greatly thank all participants of the survey and the focus group at the beginning of the project. We now invite you to take a look at the project outcomes:
We are currently evaluating the possibility to organise a webinar and to set up a common database of training opportunities at different professional levels across Europe. We will keep you informed on these.

We have made a comment stating our opinion about the recently published Principles and Standards by Young et al. (2022) which provides an international framework for ecological restoration of mine sites. Although useful, we identified some limitations for practice, especially in Europe. For more details, please read:

Recently, we have intensively dealt with the topic of regional seed mixtures thanks to the project called 'Regional seed mixtures as an effective tool for protecting the diversity of grassland habitats' funded by Norway grants. We are testing various machines for brushing donor stands. And we are not the only ones who deal with this topic. For example, in Prague, they are testing their hand-made brushing machine. We agreed on cooperation and we will compare all the brushing machines at several localities in the Prague region next year.
This project was funded by EEA and Norway Grants.

A lot of people visit Carlsbad at the time of the Film Festival but this year an unexpected thing has happened - we visited it too. But only true connoisseurs scorn the red carpet, colonnade, and Vřídlo, pass the hotels PUP and Thermal, and head ..... to the waste dump. As soon as we got out of the car, a car of the Czech TV stopped nearby. Unfortunately, they did not follow us to the waste dump, even though we have a lot to offer. Our new bachelor student, Anička Grambalová, will design a biodiversity roof for the building that will be built on this neglected site. Because we need to know what grows and lives there, we went to the waste dump for the second time. And we were surprised about the number of species occurring in such a place.
