We would like to invite you to the webinar 'Innovative monitoring techniques in aquatic systems' on Thursday 11 November 2021, 16:00 – 17:15 PM.

Aquatic systems can be under a lot of pressure due to several stressors. In order to determine the state and functioning of such systems, monitoring systems are used. For a better understanding, innovative monitoring techniques are developed and used. To learn more on these innovative monitoring techniques, KNM has organized an online webinar with the theme “Innovative monitoring techniques in aquatic systems”.

Four key note speakers will give a presentation; you can find a short summary of their presentations at the KNM website.

We hope to meet you online! Kind regards, secretary KNM
