21 October 2020 - Published by Lisa Simone de Grunt

We have now opened the registration for the 2nd IMMERSE Transnational Estuary Exchange Lab which will take place on 24 November 2020 from 09:30 - 16:00.


In order to advance development and transfer of solutions across estuaries in the North Sea Region, IMMERSE is organizing an online TEEL on the topic of sediment management in estuaries. Presentations and discussions will focus the development of innovative methods and how sediment management strategies can contribute to improving the quality of estuarine systems. This event was originally planned in person for April 2020, and the programme has been adapted to an online format using audience interaction tools and interactive discussions to share transnational knowledge and experiences.

A draft programme is available on the event page. The day will be organized around three sessions:

Introductory session: 'Transnational Estuary Exchange: Introducing IMMERSE and the Eems-Dollard estuary': 9:30 - 10:30 



Breakout session I: 'What works in sustainable sediment management strategies?': 11:00 - 13:00  



Breakout session II: 'Estuary Governance Structures and Processes': 14:00 - 16:00



NOTE: All participants are encouraged to attend the introductory session, which will ‘set the scene’ for the breakout sessions, as well as demonstrate the audience interaction tools. Participants should also register for one or both of the breakout sessions using the links above. This is the second in a series of region-wide events organized by the IMMERSE project. Information and outcomes from the 1st TEEL, held in June 2019, are available here. The IMMERSE project partners invite you or your relevant colleagues to participate and help expand the North Sea Region’s knowledge on sustainable estuary management. More information is available on the event page.
