ECN is at ILTER 2012
Every year members of ILTER gather for a range of science and business meetings, and to exchange knowledge and ideas. This year's meeting is taking place in Lisbon, Portugal from 17-21 September, and ECN representatives are in attendance. The current chair of ILTER, Dr Terry Parr (formerly the coordinator of the UK ECN network) will officially hand over the chairmanship of ILTER to Manuel Maass of the Mexican LTER network. Also attending the meeting is Dr Jan Dick from CEH Edinburgh, who develops the science programme for the ECN Cairngorms site and is also an active collaborator on the international LTER stage.
This year's meeting is focusing on the links between science, business and society, aiming to bridge the gap between research and major concerns by citizens.
