Todora Rogelja is a PhD student at the University of Padova, Department of Land, Environment, Agriculture and Forestry. She won an EFI grant for Short Scientific Visit to EFICEEC/BOKU. She is hosted by Alice Ludvig from 1 – 21 October 2017. The topic of her visit “Policies supporting social innovation in the forest-based sector: aligning diverging interests and creating synergies in forest use practices” is closely related to her Ph.D. research that addresses governance capacity of public actors for either supporting or hindering social innovation initiatives in the forest-based sector.

The main objective of her visit is to comprehend appropriate methods for analyzing how, and to what extent existing policy programmes either support or hinder social innovation initiatives based on a case study of Charcoal Land Initiative in Slovenia..

“My visit to BOKU significantly contributed to the overall quality of my Ph.D. research. I am very happy that I got the opportunity to work with excellent EFICEEC team”.
