In the scope of the BESTGRID project, nine European partners, consisting of environmental protection associations and transmission system operators, work together with a research institute to advance understanding of the transmission grid expansion. This grid development project belongs to the four pan-European pilot projects, in which BESTGRID applies innovative forms of public dialogue. Its objective is to improve local and public understanding of the projects and to speed up the approval procedure insofar as possible.
