The Course will focus on potential for dual land use (specifically, agrovoltaics) in Vienna / Austria.

The following activities are envisioned:

Group 1: on-site field trip, 2 days (if the Covid-situation allows it) to Simmering, exploring the area and visiting different stakeholders.

*our stakeholders are more comfortable speaking german than English, so for non-German speakers we will find a solution of interpretation or alternatively, Group 2 is a better option:

Group 2: individual research and field-study of a synergetic renewable energy project/synergetic land use project of your choice.

Group assignments will be discussed in detail and decided during the first meeting
