Short description
Check out Ljubljana’s initial steps in the first UIA Expert journal

After speaking to partners during her site visit in October, UIA Expert Jorgina Cuixart tells us how “APPLAUSE has gone through its first year of implementation, reaching a number of achievements: 
•    Setting up a streamlined coordination structure that is clear and practical for all partners (researchers, NGOs, businesses and public authorities learning to work together). 
•    Delivering a first campaign of Invasive Alien Plant Species (IAPS) harvesting and pre-processing (recovering IAPS and transforming it into resource).
•    Implementing the first tests for multiple uses for IAPS (using IAPS as raw material for furniture, paper products, biochemical compounds…)“.
