During the study tour, the beekeepers visited several Slovenian Associations of Beekeepers, like Association from Visnja Gora and Kocevski rog, but they were also hosted by the Slovenian Union of Beekeepers in BrdonearLukovica. There the participants visited the training centre and discussed opportunities of cooperation between the two Unions, as well as between individual Associations, especially in the field of preparing joint projects that could be financed by the European Union.
