Event International Conference on Risk Assessment in European River basins: State of the Art and Future Challenges

The conference aims to bring together leading scientists as well as European stakeholder groups involved in the assessment of risks to European river basins. Major developments of the recent European research shall be processed focussing on

    * ecosystem goods and services in risk-based management,
    * water regulation at risk under global change,
    * groundwater ecosystems and drinking water supply at risk,
    * hydrmorphological changes and risks to biodiversity,
    * eutrophication risks to biodiversity,
    * risks of environmental pollutants to ecosystem and human health,
    * integrated risk assessment on a basin scale,

particularly in terms of practical implementation for river basin management, in order to bridge the gap between science and management practice.
