The Christiaan Brunings Lecture brings together the scientists, practitioners and managers of rivers and estuaries. The keynote lecture is given by a leading international scientist, followed by lectures are given on the same topic by nationally recognised experts from an institute or industry. This takes place annually in Universiteit Utrecht, a focal point of past and future river and delta research and within walking distance of the Metronome, a novel experimental setup where rivers and estuaries are created at a scale of about 1:2000 by the group of Prof. Maarten Kleinhans.
