A Dahlem type workshop will take place in Lecce, Italy, organized under the coordination of the Activity 2 leader Dr Alberto Basset, IRIS-SES project.
As its nomenclature states, the purpose of this workshop is to promote international, interdisciplinary exchange of scientific information and ideas for research cooperation.
The workshop is on three working groups:
Working Group 1– Biodiversity (vertebrates and water column variables)
Working Group 2 – Eutrophication
Working Group 3 – Seabed habitats Biodiversity & Integrity
and involves scientists from projects (apart from IRIS) such as EMBOS, HELCOM, PERSEUS, and DEVOTES.
This should lead to an effective communication between scientists from relevant disciplines working under similar tasks but in different projects.
