Yet another project steering group meeting has been organised by the project coordinating partner, this time in Ljubljana (Slovenia). Project partners have been discussing project activities and progress in implementation of the project actions. Another important task on the agenda was careful examination of project administrative and financial issues, as the project team is facing a second mid-term report and an independent audit report just in these days.

An important aspect of the discussion were also the plans for future tasks still to be carried out until the end of the project – we planned a precise timeline for our future work. We are excited about the up-coming year, as there are still important tasks to carry out to reach fully the project’s best share to improving human-bear coexistence, contributing to long-term conservation of this magnificent beast.
