Summer Camp

July 13 @ 10:00 am - July 15 @ 11:30 am

An in-depth online workshop for practitioners interested in adaptive barrier management in Europe’s rivers

Would you like to know more about in-stream barriers in Europe’s rivers, and learn about our tools and solutions for river restoration? Join us on the 13th, 14th and 15th of July for our Online AMBER Summer Camp!

On the 29th of June, we presented the main results of the EU Horizon2020 AMBER project (AMBER & FITHYDRO EVENT – SMART WAYS TO IMPROVE RIVER CONNECTIVITY). Now, we are organising more in-depth sessions that will explore the projects results for practitioners. Over the course of three days, we will organise two, hour and a half sessions per day. These sessions will cover, in detail, about the gathered data for Europe’s first map of in-stream barriers, how AMBER tools can be used for optimising river connectivity and how we plan on using the Barrier Tracker in the future. Realising the sessions are in the middle of a period that for many is about holidays, we thought we give it a bit of a summer twist – AMBER online Summer Camp! If you are interested, please register for one or more of our AMBER Summer Camp sessions:
