The results achieved by the ECONNECT project will be disseminated during its Final Conference, which will be held in Berchtesgaden (D) from September, 26th to 28th. 

ECONNECT has aimed to enhance the ecological connectivity across the Alpine arch. After 3 years of work, the project is arriving at its end. The project developed a comprehensive methodology to preserve and enhance the Alpine ecological continuum. The actions in the field are presently being implemented within the seven Pilot Regions of the project. 

The first day of the conference will put connectivity on the political Alpine agenda and will host prominent decision makers at European, national and regional levels. During the second day the results of ECONNECT will be presented in detail and finally, the third day will be dedicated to demonstrating the field-measures implemented by the Berchtesgaden National Park.
