MSc Programme Management of Protected Areas 2012-2014
Since 2012 the Master’s course “Management of Protected Areas” has no longer been based at the Economics Institute, but has found a new home at the Institute for Geography of the Alps-Adriatic University of Klagenfurt. From 2012 to 2014 amongst others students from Austria, Brazil, Malaysia, Croatia, the Ukraine, Nepal, Romania and Albania took part in the course. At the end of 2012 the programme won the internationally renowned Binding Prize for its contribution to nature conservation – one of the most important awards for nature conservation activities in Europe. E.C.O. is mainly responsible for the course content and the organisational processing, and is the main contact for students. In 2012 the comprehensive EUROPARC library was made available to support the programme. This can now be found at E.C.O.
