Between the 2nd and the 6th of May 2017, the Centre for Regional Geography is organising a practical training in the Land of Năsăud (Ţara Năsăudului) and the District of Ciceu (Ţinutul Ciceului), two genuine geographical mental spaces. The practical training is aimed at the students of the Faculty of Geography at all academic levels and study lines, regardless of their specialization. Its purpose is to train students to apply their acquired basics and specialist knowledge, familiarise them with certain research methods and techniques and support them in developing new skills. The theme is focused on economic activities in rural areas. The practical training involves the elaboration of several spatial plans focused on proposing concrete solutions to support the economic development of a certain selected area and to serve the local communities involved.
