GATE 4th Focus Group Meeting


Tallinn, Estonia, March 2007

GATE partners once again travelled to Estonia for the 4th Focus Group meeting. This was to be just a one day meeting and did not involve 'out of town' site visits because these took place in our last visit in April 2006. We therefore met in the beautiful capital, Tallinn. The main purpose of this meeting was to discuss and agree the content and format of the forthcoming 'Policy' seminar which will be held in Tallinn in June.

The seminar will be titled "Timber - a New Policy for Europe"
The format for the conference will be presentations from experts from each partner region in the morning and two workshops in the afternoon.

A detailed report complete with photographs and conference presentations for downloading will be published on the website shortly after the event.

We then travelled across town to view the conference venue at the "Teachers House". An inspiring venue located right on the main square in Old Tallinn.
