Yesterday, April 17th 2018, the 5th plenary meeting of the RECARE project was started. The RECARE resarchers were welcomed by the partner team of National Research and Development Institute for Soil Science, Agro-chemistry and Environment (ICPA), who are hosting this meeting.

The first day was spent with welcome speeches of the ICPA hosts and RECARE project leader Rudi Hessel, followed by the information carrousel where RECARE teams exchange information with Work Package representatives in a rotating session.

Today, Wednesday, started with an introduction of Advisory Board member Peter Weisskopf, who is joining this plenary meeting as an external expert and who will give a first-impression-feedback on his findings on Thursday. The rest of the day is reserved for various WP presentations and the preparation of the RECARE policy meeting that will be organised in September 2018.

Friday, an excursion has been organised to the ICPA study site. Below a number of pictures give an impression of the ongoing meeting (pictures by Jannes Stolte).
