UEF is happy to inform you that an International field trip will be organized in Germany.

         welcome of the participants and dinner together

         - General information on wind power in the forest
         - Experience with an compatible implementation
         - Financial and contractual aspects
22.9. Excursion with cultural and forestry subjects in the region
23.9. Departure

The estimated costs for accommodation, meals and local transportation will be around 350 euros. A shortened participate excluding the 2nd day of the excursion is possible.
