Knowledge transfer between science and practice for sustainable development
(Theory - Practice, the Alps - the Carpathians)
Innovative methods, tools or instruments that may be useful in broadly understood spatial planning and regional development are often a result of research projects. Unfortunately various reasons (e.g. lack of financial resources or time to implement) often cause that these results are rarely disseminated among practitioners and presented to general public. Moreover, they are usually available in a form accepted by scientific community, but incomprehensible to practitioners.
The purpose of the interactive educational tool presented here is to provide answers to the following questions:
How to transfer scientific knowledge into practice from one mountain area to another, and whether this transfer is possible?
How to use the achievements of a scientific project obtained elsewhere in a particular area?
The materials presented here will focus primarily on projects related to sustainable development and spatial planning with particular emphasis on the use of theory and technology of geographic information.
A detailed description of the tool can be found here.
