IMMERSE is organising the third Transnational Estuary Exchange Lab (TEEL) on Thursday 10 June 2021 online. The main theme of this TEEL will be local flood protection strategies, in particular for Nordic countries such as the Holbaek community in Denmark. Participants are encouraged to attend the introductory session and one or both of the breakout sessions:
  • 9:30 – 10:30 Plenary session:
    • Introduction to IMMERSE, its aims and challenges
  • 11:00 - 13:00 Breakout session I:
    • Regional approaches to coordinated local flood protection strategies
  • 14:00 – 16:00 Breakout session II:
    • Technical Modelling approaches used in flood protection solution development and testing

The Estuary Exchange Lab features guest speakers from the Danish Coastal Authority and the German Ministry of Energy, Agriculture, the Environment, Nature and Digitalization among others. Through interactive online discussions, the Estuary Exchange Lab will offer a platform for transnational exchange: IMMERSE partners, North Sea Region estuary managers and relevant stakeholders will explore solutions and shared experiences through two dedicated breakout sessions.

Anyone with an interest in North Sea Region estuary management is encouraged to attend, and registration will open in the coming weeks. This will be the third in a series of region-wide events organized by the IMMERSE project. Information and outcomes from the previous TEEL is available here.
