Title: Smart and Green – on the spot of Visegrad cities
ID: 21820246
Type:  Visegrad Fund
Duration: 2018 – 2019
Contact person: Ing. Mária Bihuňová, PhD.

Description

The aim of this project is to give a chance to decision makers, city administration representatives to visit /learn about smart and green innovations in V4 countries. The uniqueness of this project is to bring together implementers themselves with the public sector and enable direct discussion. This is important as good examples cannot be copied in the same way from city to city, but have to take local conditions in account. It is a key point in changing behaviours to see the innovations themselves, thus our project would enable a long-term impact in raising awareness on environmental protection, climate change and sustainable development.

Title: Nature Based Solutions for Smart Cities - NEXT
Type:  Visegrad Fund
Duration: 2015 – 2019
Contact person: Ing. Mária Bihuňová, PhD.

Description

NEXT will reach key stakeholder groups involved in urban planning and management in EaP (in particular, Belarus – BY) by holding a research-intensive Summer School in Mahilioŭ, BY evaluating and discussing knowledge and lessons learned from the development of NBS for SC in the V4 and beyond, and, with a help of leading experts in the field, providing a solid base of knowledge in this field to representatives of academic, policy and praxis communities. The School will be preceded by a praxis-research workshop reviewing the V4 experience, underlining innovation and best practices, and discussing their replicability in BY and elsewhere in the EaP to contribute to good governance over sustainable livelihoods in urban and peri-urban areas through policy, business and technology innovation.

Title: Biology, Biotechnology and Food Sciences
ID: CIII-SK-1018-05-1920
Type:  CEEPUS
Duration: 2019
Contact person: prof. Ing. Miroslava Kačániová, PhD.

Description

We have collaborated with universities which are included in this project for several years. On the basis of this collaboration we decided to do the common project regards to the issues of biology, biotechnology and food sciences. This network offers new partnerships and good cooperation in the educational process as well as in science and research and accounts a support tool for enhancing interest of students in joint study programme as well. The network enables also lectures of visiting professors at partner institutions and increase of qualitative level of study. The CEEPUS project is for us all very good possibilities to do training and educational mobility for students. Students and teachers can improve their language skills and have new knowledge about culture in different European countries.

Title: Landscape Management - Sustainable Land Use Perspectives in the Central European Region
ID: CIII-CZ-0311-11-1819
Type:  CEEPUS
Duration: 2007 - 2019
Contact person: Ing. Mária Bihuňová, PhD.

Description

The interdisciplinary approach in landscape management led to our intention: to establish an active network by such partners who can represent and who has great knowledge in landscape architecture, spatial planning, horticulture, environmental science (mainly in soil, water and air systems). Therefore our main topics on which our network is built are the following: -Landscape architecture -Environmental protection - Landscape and spatial planning. Network partners will help and assist in activities (e.g. ECTS development) by providing their experiences. Our goal is (beside supporting student and teacher mobility) to reach also the young and experienced scientists, to organise professional excursions, international workshops and Summer Schools.

Title: The formulation of novel compositions and properties study of the polysaccharides based edible films and coatings with antimicrobial and antioxidant plant additives
ID: SK-BY-RD-9-014
Type:  APVV Bilateral project Slovakia-Belarus
Duration: 2019-2021
Contact person: prof. Ing. Miroslava Kačániová, PhD.

Description: On January 16, 2018, the European Commission adopted a new European strategy for protecting the environment from waste from plastic materials as one of the elements of the transition to a more circular economy “A European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy”. It is intended to limit the use of plastic disposable items. In this regard, as one of the main solutions to the problem at the national level, it is proposed to switch to such plastic packaging, which is easily recycled. The European Union by 2030 should completely switch to the use of recyclable plastic packaging. It is intended to significantly limit the consumption of items that can become a source of microplastic (small pieces of not completely biodegradable plastics) in the environment. The Project has a fundamental character along with its real practical importance.

Title: Payments for Ecosystem Services (Forests for Water)
ID: CA15206
Type:  COST Action
Duration: 2016 - 2020
Contact person: Ing. Attila Tóth, PhD.

Description: Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) are flexible, incentive-based mechanisms that could play an important role in promoting land use change to deliver water quality targets. The PESFOR-W COST Action will consolidate learning from existing trees for water PES schemes in Europe and help standardize approaches to evaluating the environmental effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of tree based measures. It will also create a European network through which PES schemes can be facilitated, extended and improved, for example by incorporating other ecosystem services linking with aims of the wider forests-carbon policy nexus

Description: Vegetation is a central component of riparian landscapes, and provides multiple ecosystem services. In recent decades such importance stimulated a steadily growing number of investigations focussing on riparian vegetation. However scientific investigations in this field are proceeding as isolated initiatives that translate to common practices at a very slow rate and with limited input from the practitioners.This action aims to establish a baseline in the state of knowledge regarding riparian vegetation, coordinate research efforts, contribute to knowledge conversion from science to practitioners and to COST Inclusiveness Target Countries and to promote practitioners research interests in the scientific community.
