2020

11 June – 10.00 – 12.30 CESTWebinar EurAqua on nature-based solutions.
Webinar within the context of the Green Deal with the focus on nature-based solutions to increase climate resilience to hydrological extremes and to protect, conserve and enhance EU’s natural capital. This webinar will provide an overview of latest insights on the water challenges and the potential contribution of nature-based solutions to the Green Deal. The webinar will also address the research and innovation challenges and demonstration cases and living labs. See the programme of the webinar.

7-10 July7th International Symposium on Sediment Management (I2SM), Lille, France.
The symposium is organised by IMT Lille Douai.
The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to 15 March 2020.
Selected papers will be published in international peer reviewed journals. Poster presentations are also encouraged, since papers accompanying a poster will be equally considered for publication.

27-31 JulyCourse Sediment Transport in Stream Assessment and Design, Logan, Utah USA.
This course is intended for those who wish to understand and apply the principles of sediment transport to alluvial channel assessment and design. The course balances advance reading, lecture, field work, and hands-on exercises for estimating sediment supply, calculating sediment transport rates, and forecasting channel response to water and sediment supply.
