TOPSOIL at AquaConSoil

Monday, October 9, 2017 - Published by Jens Uvijn
From june 26 till june 30 of 2017 the 14th International Conference on sustainable use and management of soil, sediment and water resources took place in Lyon (France).

Lead partner, Central Denmark Region, got the honor to present TOPSOIL at the 14th AquaConSoil Conference. Why was the project’s presence there such a big deal? Let us pause and look at the mission of the AquaConSoil Conference.

The programme of the conference states the following. In a context of global and environmental change, societies are facing challenging issues, such as water and soil preservation. Innovative solutions have to be implemented in order to address these issues and ensure a sustainable territorial development. A circular economy approach can’t only be applied to waste, but also to soil, sediments and the course of water. New solutions still need to be developed to enhance the role of the soil and subsurface in the process of treatment and storage for water preservation.

The French consortium  involved in the preparation of the conference is persuaded that AquaConSoil is not only about connecting people but that it will provide the possibility to build new networks and partnerships with people and organizations with different background (scientists, policy makers, industry,…), also across borders.  AquaConSoil provides several platforms for continued interaction during and after the conference.

Needless to say that this conference provided a great amount of networking opportunity for the TOPSOIL project.
