The main goal of EURODEER is to produce collaborative science, which includes scientific papers in peer review journals but also participation in congresses and workshops where themes relevant to the project are discussed. Education is also an important element of the projects, especially for PhD and master science students.
In addition to the scientific outputs that were produced completely by EURODEER, there are a number of other outputs where EURODEER contributed significantly. Below a list of the main outputs/achievements with scientific relevance is reported.

Training is key in the EURODEER project because only with appropriate tools and knowledge of advanced management and analysis technical is possible to exploit the golden mine embedded in the huge mass of data provided by biotelemetry sensors and to link them with all the other information available on animals, their interactions and environment. Workshops, summer schools, publications, seminars are the main way for EURODEER partner to train and get trained on these topics. In addition to the publications and the PhD students who are developing their research completely or partially in the framework of EURODEER the main achievement in this sense are the two summers schools that were organized on data management:

Most of the material (lessons, data, examples) used for the second summer school are available here.
