  • 2nd project meeting Warsaw - 8th and 9th of July 2014

    1st Advisory board meeting Warsaw - 9th of July 2014

    The focus of the Warsaw meeting was to finalise the 'wish' list of indicators to be included in the FLINT project.

    Based on an extensive literature review in all partner countries a long list of indicators as identified in the literature was developed. Based on the policy relevance and practical reasons (such as duplication of indicators) a short list of indicators was developed to be included in the FLINT project. During the Warsaw meeting some open issues were discussed and appointments were made on the further clarification and operationalisation of the indicators. Furthermore the methodology for the stakeholder analysis (WP 2) was presented and discussed and the first design of the IT infrastructure was presented.
    On the second day the first advisory board meeting took place. The members of the advisory board were informed on the background and objectives of the project and the wish list of indicators was presented and discussed.

  • 4th project meeting The Hague - 28th and 29th of January 2015

    During the Hohenheim meeting it became clear that some partners still had many questions about how to collect the data.

    Therefore an additional project meeting was organised to discuss data collection issues and share experiences of partners who already do collect some of the additional Flint indicators. Each of the participating partners introduced the relevant experience on the collection of data and the processing of data on Flint indicators. Data collection in different administrative environments were illustrated and discussed. Also the possibilities and feasibility of the use of farm management systems to collect the relevant FLINT information was presented and discussed.
