Title of the poster was: SIMONA project- Transnationally Harmonized Protocol for Drainage Sediment Sampling and Laboratory Analysis of Hazardous Substances Content in Danube River Basin.
During the congress, progress of the SIMONA project was presented to the attendees, who had chance to get information about the aims and goals of the project.
