The project “Sustainable Land Management Network (SULANET)” was an ERASMUS+ project (action programme: Jean Monnet) and had a duration of 4 years (September 2015 until August 2018). Under the leadership of the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra (SUA) the following four universities cooperated in this European project: University of Foggia (Italy), University of Bialystok (Poland), University of Cordoba (Spain), University of Agribusiness and Rural Development in Plovdiv (Bulgaria) and BOKU (Austria). The network of higher educational institutions was based on their professional focus in order to ensure multidisciplinary synergy and excellence in teaching and research activities in the field of land management in the EU.
The overall aim of the project was to create a virtual research and educational “sustainable land management network” with the specific objectives of promoting research and teaching in the field of sustainable European land management and strengthening the effectiveness of land-use governance in the EU (SULANET 2018).
The main activities of BOKU were the organisation of a Workshop & Seminar on the topic of “Trade-Offs on Decision Making in Land Management” (23rd January 2017) and of a Seminar & Round-Table Discussion on the topic of “Barriers and Stimuli in Land Management” (31st January 2018). BOKU staff members gave lectures at Summer Schools in Nitra / Slovakia (2016) and Foggia / Italy (2017). BOKU also was strongly involved in the preparation of the project publication “Politische und rechtliche Grundlagen für das Landmanagement in der EU”.
In the final project year, BOKU organised a project meeting in Vienna (July 2018) and contributed with lectures at the Summer School in Plovdiv / Bulgaria (June 2018).
