The aim of this research area is to investigate and implement efficient ways of communicating scientific knowledge to different user groups. Besides standard dissemination approaches (e.g. papers in peer reviewed journals, books, workshops and courses), a special emphasis has been put on the dissemination of results through agro-environmental education programs directed to schoolchildren. Studies on specific user groups needs (e.g. agriculture and forest associations, Ministry of Agriculture, Institute for Nature Conservation) have also been carried out allowing CEABN training activities to be directed towards detected gaps. Since 2002 monthly public seminars are also organized by CEABN in collaboration with the Forestry Department of ISA, where the findings of the different research projects are presented and discussed.
