In august 2016, we received a visit from Jen Holzer, PhD student at the Technion Socio-Ecological Research Group in Haifa, Israel. Her research trip was supported by the eLTER H2020 project’s Transnational Access (TA) scheme.

During Jen’s visit to the region, she interviewed researchers and other local people about environmental issues within the region. Her research was part of the TASER project (Transition to Socio-Ecological Research – Assessment and Characterization), which aims to characterize how researchers and stakeholders affiliated to LTSER platforms understand and implement socio-ecological research, how they define goals and how they measure success at achieving those goals.
