The fifth transnational meeting under the HEI PLADI Project took place on the 5 and 6 of October of this year in Cagliari, Italy
Host of the event was the University of Cagliari. The partners in the project discussed the implementation of virtual and mobile courses in compliance with the worked out in advance schedule under the project. Thanks to the efforts of all participants, the virtual platform is to be entirely completed in the shortest possible terms, and through it anyone who wished will be able to take thematic courses in the sphere of plant diversity – theoretical and practical aspects. In this way, the project is to achieve its own key goal related to contributing for higher educational reforms of the institutions as an answer to the present and newly arising green work places in the labour market. The practical trainings of students continue to be implemented on time in terms of the schedule, and the applicants can follow both the site of the project, and the information provided by the partners at a local level
During the meeting, the partners also had an opportunity to get acquainted with the collections in the Botanic Garden of the University of Cagliari, and to visit the seed bank, the herbarium and the library of the institution, as well as to take a walk in the vicinity of the town and to learn more about the Mediterranean vegetation and the endemic plants on the island.
In compliance with the schedule, the University Botanic Gardens will host the next meeting of the partners in the project in the month of May of 2018.
