Save the Date! The IMMERSE Final Conference in Antwerp 23-24 March 2022

24 January 2022 - Published by Frederik Roose

The IMMERSE project partnership has set a date for the final conference, as an in-person event in the beautiful city of Antwerp!

The partnership is organising a final conference to share findings from measure development and promote transferability of solutions to other estuaries. Conference sessions will be interactive to ensure diverse thematic exchanges between participants, including a 'shop window' of IMMERSE solutions.

The first day will include a plenary session with keynote speakers to set the scene and outline the main issues of estuary management. This will be followed by thematic breakout sessions on flood risk, sediment management and habitat creation measures developed in IMMERSE which could be applied elsewhere, with conclusions summarised in a final plenary session. The second day of the conference will include study visits to two estuary sites along the Scheldt hosted by the IMMERSE partnership.

Despite the ongoing difficulties posed by COVID-19 restrictions, we are confident that we will be able to host a safe event with the appropriate health & safety measures according to the latest government guidelines and advice.
