|Workshop Date:||28-29 January 2020|
|Information:||The European Stakeholder Workshop on Fish-friendly Hydropower will be held on 28-29 January 2020 in Brussels, Belgium.
This event will serve as a platform for consultation and exchange between FIThydro scientists, policy-makers and technical experts working on the assessment of impacts from hydropower plants and the planning of mitigation measures.
This workshop is being organised in the context of FIThydro, a 4-year EU-funded H2020 research project (2016-2020), which addresses decision support in commissioning and operating hydropower plants by use of existing and innovative technologies. FIThydro concentrates on mitigation measures and strategies to develop cost-effective environmental solutions and on strategies to avoid fish damage and enhance population developments.
Technical results from FIThydro research will be presented, that can directly support better and more transparent implementation of EU and national policies for renewable energy production and aquatic ecosystems protection. Participating experts will be invited to give their feedback on the added value of tools developed by FIThydro for decision-making and to exchange on the needs for further research and action for more fish-friendly hydropower.
The workshop will start at 11:00 (registration) on 28 January and finish by 15:00 on 29 January.
