Presentations of the Hydropower, Fish and River Connectivity #HydroFish2020 Twitter Conference
During the #HydroFish2020 Twitter Conference on October 20th, 16 Early Career Researchers + 1 keynote speaker presented their research on Hydropower, Fish and River Connectivity. You can view their presentations here.

We would like to thank all participants and especially the presenters of the #HydroFish2020 Twitter Conference for making it such a successful event.

The format gave Early Career Researchers the opportunity to showcase their research to a wide audience and allowed people from all over the world to participate, read the presentations and ask questions. Now you can read their presentations too, even without a Twitter account.

Each presentation consists of a series of 10 Tweets (each of which has up to 280 characters) and is supported by pictures and videos. This way, you will be able to get a quick yet precise overview of the latest research and results presented during the #HydroFish2020 conference.

The talks of each presenter can be found below; to read the presentation expand the title by clicking on it or on the + sign.
