Lars Sekse opened the meeting, ..., 10 Oct 2004 [cached]
Lars Sekse opened the meeting, welcomed all 19 participants and thanked Edite Kaufmane for the excellent organization of the meeting and the warm welcome in Riga.
Lars Sekse explained that the annual meeting of EUFRIN has two aims: 1. to present the reports on the activities of the EUFRIN working groups and 2. to inform the participants on special projects or developments in the EUFRIN member countries (= member tasks).
The first topic, the working group reports were addressed.
Lars Sekse informed the group, that the fruit thinning working group had met in 2004 at the Laimburg in South Tyrol, Italy.For 2005, a meeting is planned in Norway at his institute.
Lars Sekse
The tourist industry in the regions of Lofthus are partly based on the qualities of the landscape created by fruit growing.Three directors of the most important hotels in the Lofthus region initiated a project in which the knowledge of how economy and marketing in the tourist industry is influenced by changes in the landscape caused by modern fruit production techniques shall be studied.The leader of the project is Lars Sekse.The project is interdisciplinary and involves 3 institutes: Planteforsk, the Geographical Institute of the University of Bergen and the Norwegian Agricultural Economics Research Institute.Lars Sekse gives some examples of recent changes in the landscape due to modern fruit growing: weather protection in cherry plantations (cherries can be grown until August in Norway and have, due to the comparatively late harvest time, a high market potential), taking over of forestry plants due to abandoning of pastures.
Lars Sekse opened the meeting and suggested the following agenda:
1. Presentations at the meeting 2005 (Lars Sekse)
3. Information from the ISHS meeting in Australia 2004 (Lars Sekse)
In Europe ISHS is fragmented.There is no great interest to have regular European meetings so far.Some countries have well organized national societies under the umbrella of ISHS, others have not.
Sekse would like to see a common European meeting every two years like the Americans do.The EUFRIN members should discuss this in their circles.EUFRIN could play a role as it is a good established network.
Sekse rose the point that there is worldwide a decrease of people working and/or training in horticulture.He suggested that EUFRIN could be used to think about what changes could be suitable to improve this situation.
5. Next meeting (Lars Sekse)
6. New board and country members (Lars Sekse)
Lars Sekse will have his final term in 2005, Urs Hilber will serve until 2006.
Lars Sekse asked all participants to think about the chair succession (to be elected in 2005).
Representatives from Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey and Sweden were invited to join EUFRIN.The representative from Romania answered to the invitation.Lars Sekse will continue to stay in contact with Bulgaria and Turkey.
Lars Sekse will talk to the candidates.
The business meeting was interrupted for a lunch in Babtai which was kindly offered by the Institute.The traditional dinner was excellent and U. Hilber thanked the hosts for their presentations, their spirit and for the fine food.The business meeting was continued in the bus on the way back to Riga.
Lars Sekse closed the business meeting at 14.14 in the bus on the trip back to Riga.
In the evening we were invited by Edite Kaufmane on a tour through old Riga which we all enjoyed a lot despite the heavy rain!For the farewell Edite invited all participants to a very special restaurant in Riga.The food was excellent and so we concluded a further EUFRIN meeting very successfully.Lars Sekse thanked Edite Kaufmane for the superb organisation and closed the meeting officially.
