04 February 2020 - Published by Lisa Simone de Grunt

Please note that due to the increasing COVID-19 measures across Europe, the 2nd IMMERSE Transnational Estuary Exchange Lab has unfortunately been postponed until further notice. The event is still expected to still take place at a later date in 2020. If you would like to attend the TEEL on a new date, please express your interest through filling in the registration form and we will keep you updated. Thank you for your understanding. 


The main theme of this Exchange Lab is about sediment management in estuaries, in particular the development of innovative methods and how sediment management strategies can contribute to the improvement of the quality of estuarine systems (support sustainable development of estuaries).

Different aspects of sediment management strategies will be considered:

1) Long term sediment management strategies

2) Managing turbidity

3) Governance: structures and processes


The Exchange Lab will discuss the value, role and importance of sediments in estuarine ecosystems and also introduce the management context of the Eems-Dollard estuary. At the Exchange Lab, IMMERSE partners, North Sea Region estuary managers and relevant stakeholders will explore solutions and share experiences through a variety of discussion formats. Anyone with an interest in North Sea Region estuary management is encouraged to attend. We invite you to register to join in the interactive discussions at the Exchange Lab, where participants will have a unique opportunity to share expertise and to develop new ideas for management solutions. Registration closes on 18 March.
