RINSE closing conference and event
After three years of cross-border cooperation in the control of invasive non-native species in Europe, the RINSE Project is coming to a close this September. To celebrate its legacy and results, RINSE is hosting a free closing conference at OPEN, Bank Plain, Norwich. Registration for the event is now open. Please see http://www.rinse-europe.eu/conference for further details.
Furthermore, the INTERREG 2 Seas Programme Authorities, along with the SEFINS partnership, invite you to their free event on the effective management of invasive non-native species in Europe. The conference will take place at the same venue as the above closing conference on 24 September 2014. International experts from a range of fields relating to the management of invasive species will give speeches during the event focusing on ‘Bridging the Gap’ - both between research, policy and action but also in an important, but overlooked, habitat - the estuarine environment. Hot topics such as risk management, knowledge transfer and citizen science will also be covered alongside a number of interactive workshops.
SEFINS is a ‘cluster’ project bringing together key partners from the RINSE and MEMO projects to exchange knowledge and capitalise on the ground-breaking work already carried out by these projects.
This event is aimed at scientists, policy makers, elected representatives and other key stakeholders with an interest in the appropriate management of invasive non-native species. Simultaneous French and Dutch translations will be provided for all presentations.
Participation is FREE. The Programme and details of how to register will follow shortly. To stay up to date with information please see www.sefins.eu.
