StructureThe structure of INTERact
The paramount goal of INTERact is to elaborate multi-partnered international research projects on integrated spatial planning (see figure below). The main focus lies on water management and agriculture, however, in highly diverse ethnic and religious CEE-SEE countries, the social component is to be emphasized. In the first phase, a socio-ecological field analysis will be conducted to define future research requirements for spatial planning and ecosystem service mapping. The acquisition of potential partners from business, science, planning and administration is a priority issue. The second phase is characterized by different research stays and workshops in CEE-SEE countries to identify case study areas. With the potential partners the data availability will be proven, which is accompanied by a strong dissemination of information.
