The first project meeting at Gdańsk Tech on April 18-19 for PLAN-B (The Path towards
addressing adverse impacts of Light and Noise pollution on terrestrial Biodiversity and
ecosystems), which is funded by the EU program “Horizon Europe”.

On 18 and 19 April, a meeting will be held in Gdansk (Poland) to launch the PLAN-B pilot activities in this city. To this end, several researchers from the consortium will travel to the city to exchange experiences and draw up a plan in the two pilot areas under study.

These two days of work will be hosted by Gdansk Tech, and its managers Paweł Tysiąc and Joanna Badach, together with the Deans of the Faculty of Architecture and the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering will welcome Dan E. Nilsson (Lund University), Reinhard Kleinke (German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv)), Mike Wood (University of Salford, UK), David H Fletcher (United Kingdom Centre for Ecology & Hydrology) and Timothy Van Renterghem (Ghent University). Local colleagues such as Katarzyna Bobkowska (GdańskTech), Tomasz Hoppe (City of Gdansk), Artur Janowski (University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn) will also join the meeting.

In addition to the working sessions, two on-site visits to the pilot study areas in Gdnask will take place, which will give PLAN-B researchers a better insight into their needs and the research techniques required to achieve the project objectives.

The PLAN-B Project aims to address the adverse impacts of Light and Noise pollution on terrestrial Biodiversity and ecosystems across Europe.
