Science_Linknockberge is a cooperation between the Institute of Instructional and School Development of the Alpen-Adria-University and the biosphere reserve Nock Mountains. The collaboration is founded on the biosphere reserve’s mission for research, education, conservation and development and aims to encourage students to conduct their research papers in the region. E.C.O. provides the professional and technical supervision from the outside. Its core activities are the support of students with professional questions when working on their bachelor and master thesis and the adaption of the questionnaire for research questions. A research workshop for finding the right thesis topic will take place in June.
