Activities

The 1st Activity: The professional praxes and internships between the partners

The realization participants: 

  • Mendel University in Brno
  • Bioinstitut, public benefit organization
  • CENELC.CZ
  • PalackýUniversityOlomouc, Faculty of Science
  • VÚKOZ, Publ.Res.Inst.

Detail description of the key activity:

The aim of the activity is close cooperation between partners. The internships are focused on reciprocal exchanging professional experiences in various fields applying the European landscape convention (Convention). Each partner is professionally expert in another domain of Convention and through the internships it will come to their interconnection.  Each institute will delegate 1 person to each partner for 2 month. Each institute will accept for the same time one of the representative partner. The internship will participate both of the target group – students as well as employees in further training and development. The intern will get to know the workplace and the way of work during the internship by the partner. During the internship the interns will be methodically leaded by the project coordinators and they will participate in all activities related to the project.

The output of key activity:

Measurable output activity will be the number of completed and received two-month internship for the duration of the project. Activity includes a total of 20 completed internships. These internships can not be compared with the compulsory practice of students or staff with placements at partner universities or other institutions. Such a network allows creating complex and interconnected system of work and dealing with the Convention between the academic and scientific research environment and an environment that interferes with the practice.

The second output of activity will be an expert bilingual (Czech-English) publication dealing with the European Landscape Convention. The content will address problems and correct incorporation of the Convention into the planning, protection and landscape management, will also present the risks and consequences in the consequence of its breaking. Similar publications, worked out in such a large team of experts and also bilingual, is not yet in the Czech Republic. The publication will be used not only by students of “landscape” disciplines, but also the staff of institutions involved in implementation of the Convention by legislation, government reports, or staff of administration by practical interventions in the landscape. Bilingual text progresses the publication to the European level and through its form (English text opposite the Czech) will serve all target groups as well the means of learning the English terminology. Publication will be created at the end of the project, as a result of the internships.

The 2nd Activity: The professional internships abroad and acceptance of foreign experts

Detail description of the key activity:

The internships by foreign experts will be realized aimed at the dissemination and sharing the experience with the using and implementation of the European Landscape Convention in different conditions. All foreign institutions are world-renowned experts in the field of planning, conservation and landscape management.
