Sullied Sediments second annual meeting coming up in September in Hamburg
Our project beneficiaries and advisory partners will come together for our second annual meeting in Hamburg on 19 and 20 September 2018. Our work package leaders will give progress updates and provide a look ahead to the last 18 months of delivery. We will also have focused sessions on transnational cooperation and communication, the proposed end-of-waste assessment, bioavailability and the roll-out of the volunteer sampling programme across the North Sea region. In addition, we are looking forward to hearing how our sister project - Nuredrain - is doing and finalising plans to trial our bespoke dipsticks, which have been engineered to detect phosphate in water, in some of their partner locations.
At this year's meeting, we are offering our partners a further opportunity for knowledge exchange and networking. We have worked with the European Sediment Network (called SedNet) to schedule our annual meeting so it runs in tandem with their workshop focused on sediment classification and management decisions - in situ and ex situ. This will enable members of Sednet colleagues to meet our partners and find out more about our project. Likewise, our partners have been invited to attend the SedNet workshop, which runs in the same location through to 21 September 2018.
It will be a very busy few days - we are looking forward to seeing familiar faces, meeting new colleagues and having some great discussion.
