The event was hosted by ISA, Instituto Superior de Agronomia, one of the partners on the project. The aim of the session was to share experiences on best practices in data collection and to provide guidance on how to calculate/estimate indicator values for which data are not readily available. Experiences from the indicator data collection for Single FWCs demonstrated that not in all cases the necessary indicator values are readily available per production process.
There was a need, therefore for discussion and sharing the experience between partners especially now when the following step in data collection will be the data collection for Case Studies. The training session provided stimulating discussion in a very positive atmosphere. The timetable focused on general data collection issues but also on particular indicators (socio-economic, waste, energy and transport indicators). It was one day and a half of valuable experiences and progressive work. The event feedback showed partners interest in continuing of such events.
A DVD including all individual sessions from the training will be available to all partners in January 2008.
