[vc_column_text]Members of the Boreal Ecosystem Recovery and Assessment (BERA) project held their first stakeholder engagement workshop on Wednesday, November 30th, in Edmonton, Alberta. It was both an opportunity to introduce the project itself, its members, and the scientific research being undertaken, as well as a means of inviting meaningful discussions between members, partners, existing and potential new collaborators around the practical applications of BERA research and innovation. The workshop was started with welcoming remarks by Dr. Greg McDermid, followed by a keynote address by Dr. Tara Fulton who set the stage for a morning of brief, informative talks and meaningful dialogue. BERA’s three main research teams – Remote Sensing, Sensor Network, and Ecology – provided overviews of their work within the overall project to date. Brief progress updates were provided by each team as well as individual lightning talks introducing the ongoing research projects that were available to view and discuss in more details during an interactive poster session. A moderated discussion was held at the end of the workshop, in order to encourage open dialogue between the workshop hosts, their partners, collaborators and other stakeholders engaged on the frontlines of similar research and planning needs. Informative feedback and meaningful input into ensuring project relevance to BERA partners’ and collaborators’ needs and to the future direction of ecosystem recovery monitoring within Alberta was the focus of the discussion.

We want to thank all workshop participants for engaging with us and providing their valuable feedback! We will be working on exploring your inputs and synthesizing the meeting outcomes in the New Year and we already look forward to another exciting year of BERA research![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column][vc_column_text]Workshop Details[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”green” border_width=”3″ css=”.vc_custom_1481173438131{padding-bottom: 10px !important;}”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Date: Wednesday, November 30th, 2016, 8:30 am – 1:30 pm
