On Friday, Michaela, Albin and Georg attended the kick-off workshop of the project “Effect of climate extremes on grapevine production in South Tyrol: early detection of abiotic stress and consequences for vine quality” funded by the province of Südtirol/Alto Adige. During the course of the workshop the three project teams from Free University of Bolzano, Laimburg and University of Innsbruck visited the TerraXCube in Bolzano, where a factorial heat-drought experiment will be conducted, the EC tower at the field site near Plantaditsch, discussed the mid-term planning for 2021 and had an excellent joint lunch in the Felsenkeller at Laimburg.
Today MSc student Lorenzo Barbieri successfully defended his thesis entitled “Seasonal and Inter-annual variation of aerosol size distributions and identification of processes affecting New Particle Formation at Mt. Cimone (Italy)” – congratulations!
Today Albin and Georg attended the presentation of the successful projects of the 2019 Research Südtirol/Alto Adige call in Bozen/Bolzano (http://www.provinz.bz.it/news/de/news.asp?news_action=4&news_article_id=643217). Proud and grateful to be amongst the 20 funded projects and looking forward to collaborate with UniBz (Massimo Tagliavini et al.) and Laimburg (Barbara Raifer and Florian Haas) in this project!
