A meeting between representatives of IETU and NIBIO took place in Norway on 25-29.09.2022 as part of the jointly implemented Mod4GrIn project. The IETU team was represented by Dr. Marta Pogrzeba, prof. IETU, Dr. Wojciech Bąba, prof. IETU and Dr. Jacek Krzyżak, while NIBIO was represented by Dr Hans Martin Hanslin.
The aim of the meeting was to present the progress in project implementation and to learn about NIBIO's activities and research infrastructure. The meeting participants visited the NIBIO research stations in Særheim, Landvik and the headquarters in Ås. During the visit, the participants were informed about the research work at each station, especially in the field of biodiversity conservation and agriculture.
Dr Hans Martin Hanslin presented the achievements related to the creation and management of green roofs, both on a scientific and semi-technical level and on a real scale, using several building examples in Oslo. IETU participants also learned about the Norwegian approach to biodiversity protection in protected areas and the possibilities to implement nature-based solutions in the infrastructure of urban areas. The visit was also an opportunity to build wider cooperation between IETU and NIBIO.
