Brecon Beacons National Park partnership event

USW and the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority will host a joint workshop event in September to discuss research opportunities as part of a recently formed partnership.

The event, which takes place on September 13 and 14 at Bryn Meadows Hotel, will aim to develop multidisciplinary collaborative and monitoring opportunities between BBNPA and universities across Wales.

The workshop will bring together representatives from the National Park Authority, academics from University of Wales Trinity St David, Swansea, Cardiff Metropolitan, Bangor and Cardiff Universities, and from organisations such as Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and the Welsh Government, to discuss the current needs and priorities of the Welsh National Parks.

Delegates will join sessions on topics such as biodiversity and landscape, economic development, resilient communities and heritage, to identify key opportunities for monitoring and research.
