International events

The end of Actions 3, 7 & 9 represent an opportunity to join major International Events to promote the AMICE project and share results. These events will be dedicated to politicians, water managers and experts of all sectors potentially impacted by modifications of the hydrology.

The final International Event will be organised jointly by EPAMA and RIOU as well as the partners from the host country:

- First Event: 2010, Belgium, results from floods & low-flows scenarios,

- Second Event: 2012, Germany, results from risk analysis of future extreme events,

- Third Event: 2012, France, results from strategy of adaptation and investments.

200 participants are foreseen at the last event.

Specialists from different countries will be invited to present their experiences and ideas to an international attendance. The meetings can include specialised workshops where all attendees will be able to discuss the views and experiences presented.

The International Events will provide:

- an important input of knowledge on the topics presented;

- a real working and learning network all along the river Meuse.

The last International Event will also be the occasion to launch new ideas of transnational projects on the Meuse.

We will look for possibilities to associate these meetings with others, if possible bigger, events that already are being organised in the 4 countries of the Meuse basin.

The First Event could take place in Liege, in relation to the Meuse Symposium.

The Second will be organised with the help from RWTH-Aachen that organises the International Hydraulic Symposium "IWASA" in January 2012 (http://www.iww.rwth-aachen.de). Target group are scientists, civil servants, consultants and everyone who is interested in hydraulic research and hydraulic projects. There are about 300 attendees each year. The symposium is a perfect platform for communication in Germany.
