trAILs meeting in Eisenerz and first site visit to the AT pilot

On January 24th-25th the whole trAILs team met in Leoben-Eisenerz for the first site visit to the Austrian pilot site. On the first day, we reached Eisenerz and explored the former blast furnace site Münichtal with the support of local stakeholders (site owners and Mayor of Eisenerz). Many useful informations and insights about the site conditions and the development challenges in the region were gained. Some project partners already performed some on-site activities, such as UniVerona, whose team recorded and filmed interviews with local stakeholders and representatives of the community. On the second day we had an indoor meeting at the Kunsthalle Leoben. In the first session, scientific partners presented their approaches and methods for the site assessment (WP T2), while in the second session we had a small workshop in which we explored together the connections between the proposed methods and assessed, with the help of regional partners, their relevance and feasibility. The first communication materials such as posters and flyers were also presented and distributed to everybody for own promotional activities.
