Workshop NWO & NCK: Building with Nature

Theme days
Thursday, 26 January 09:30 - 17:00
Jaarbeurs Utrecht - Jaarbeursplein
3521 Utrecht, Netherlands

On Thursday January 26, 2017 there will be a joint meeting of the five NWO-BwN projects: EMERGO, BE SAFE, Smart Ecosystems, CoCoChannel and Rebuilding barrier islands. Knowledge gain within these projects is not only important from a scientific point of view, but also forms the foundation for policy and future delta and river developments. The aim of this day is to inform each other and strengthen the interaction with our consortium partners, especially the NGO’s.

What to expect:

  • An introduction/update of the five projects
  • Interactive poster session
  • Networking possibility

You are invited to register for this day through this link.
