On Thursday and Friday, November 14-15, 2019, University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering (UL FGG) hosted experts from Akershus in Oslo Jordskifterett, Norway. The so-called Land Consolidation court has an important role in the field of land management and land administration in Norway – interdisciplinary expert team coming from the fields of land management and land administration, geodesy and land surveying, law, land valuation, spatial planning, agriculture and forestry, etc.
On Thursday, November 14, guests from Norway visited UL FGG and the Surveying and Mapping Authority of the Republic of Slovenia (SMA). A short lecture on the Land administration system in Slovenia was given by prof. Anka Lisec, followed by the presentation of Norwegian Jordskifterett, which was given by the head of the Akershus in Oslo Jordskifterett, Dr. Øystein Jakob Bjerva. Within the SMA visit, the Director of the Slovenian SMA, Tomaž Petek, presented the organisation and current projects of the Slovenian public surveying service, while Franc Ravnihar with his team presented the system of land cadastre in Slovenia. A special lecture was dedicated to projects of the agricultural land consolidation, which was provided by Tomaž Primožič from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food of the Republic of Slovenia.
The Friday’s programme was dedicated to a field trip, where experts from Norway joined the students of master study programme Geodesy and Geoinformatics at UL FGG. Within the visit of the company Geodetski zavod Celje d.o.o., the director of the company, Dominik Bovha, with his colleagues presented experiences in the field of agricultural and building land consolidation/readjustments, with a short introduction to the afternoon visit of the Hajdina land consolidation area. At the municipality of Hajdina, the projects with the focus on land management were presented. Guided by the experts who coordinated the selected land consolidation project, Emil Ratek and Jernej Jurak, we have visited the Hajdina land consolidation area.
A special thanks go to all who contributed to the programme and the organisation of a professional visit!
Finally, we should highlight that the cooperation between the UL FGG and the experts from Norway is partly the result of bilateral projects financed by the EEA and Norway Grants in the past.
