International webinar Platform Baggernet ‘Sediment as a resource’ & final symposium of Interreg project ‘Using Sediment As a Resource’
In cooperation with Dutch Regional Water Authority of Schieland and the Krimpenerwaard and international partners – October 8th 2020
'Using Sediment As a Resource' was the theme of Platform Baggernet's international webinar, which took place on Thursday October 8th 2020. The webinar was combined with the final symposium of the Interreg-project 'Using Sediment As a Resource' (USAR). In light of the COVID-19 pandemic the planned Baggernet/USAR conference in March 2020 unfortunately had to be cancelled. Instead, a webinar was organized.
The central focus of the webinar was sharing results of the USAR project, in which the Regional Water Authority of Schieland and the Krimpenerwaard (NL), Flemish Waterway (BE), ARMINES Research Centre (FR), Westcountry Rivers Trust (UK) and Brightlingsea Harbour Commissioners (UK) participate. The USAR partners identified, demonstrated, and tested new methods, and developed business models and tools that water managers need to apply this circular approach in practice.
