Building the Field Station
At the site of the Hedwige Prosperpolder a Field Station will be built. It plays an important role in the sustainability of the results of the Polder2C’s project.
About the Field Station
The field station will be in use as a base camp for researchers and as a location for Winter school activities during and after the project.
Purpose of the Field Station
The field station will be used to accommodate organizations and individuals whilst visiting the project location. For the general public it will be used for communication about the project and the environment, nature, history and cultural heritage. It will be opened at indicated times, when seasons and ecological circumstances allow it, and actively promoted during communication activities. Scholars will be informed as part of the curricula or Winter School inscription procedure.
During the Polder2C’s project
During the project, the Field Station will have several purposes.
- Meeting place for researchers
National and international knowledge on climate adaptation in relation to the output of our project can be shared.
- Test facility for research
Research can be carried out in the Field Station. There is room for simple test facilities, a test control room and monitoring. The possibility for overnight stays (24/7 operation of the tests) is included.
- Knowledge transfer
The field station will be used for knowledge transfer, it will be the base camp for Winter School or University courses.
The field station can also be used for dissemination and as an educational centre. It can serve as a central point to involve the regional stakeholders (Streekholders).
