JRC Blue Seminars: Aquatic processes and water technology
The European Commission's Environment Institute, part of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), is organizing a series of high level seminars in the area of aquatic processes and water technology. The seminars, otherwise known as the "Blue Seminars", are held on a monthly basis at the JRC site in Ispra, Italy.
Seminars planned in the next four months are as follows:
- Biogeochemical consequences of bacteria-organic matter interactions in aquatic ecosystems: A unifying view (24 September 1996);
- Research aspects in the prevention and mitigation of hydrological risks (30 October 1996);
- From algal nutrient competition to zooplankton and fish: Is there a bottom-up propagation of effects? (27 November 1996);
- Socio-economic and institutional dimensions in water management (16 December 1996).
The "Blue Seminars" are open to the whole scientific community and are intended to serve as an open forum for discussion and exchange of information regarding the management of water resources in Europe. They are also expected to contribute to the implementation of the Task Force on water technologies which is being established by the Commission.
