The SIMONA project LP GEOZS was successfully accepted for the participation and poster presentation at the 2nd International Conference on Contaminated Sediments (ContaSed 2021), which will be hosted by the University of Bern, Switzerland from 9th to 12th June 2021, online. The conference this year will focus on organic and inorganic sediment contaminant classes including microplastics, emerging contaminants, heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants. There will be 5 topics concerning sediment contamination and we will shortly present our SIMONA project in the scope of Topic 3: Analytical tools and methods for assessing sediment contamination.
We also applied for participation at the European River Symposium on 26th and 27th May 2021 organised by the European Centre for River restoration, also held online. In general, the lectures of this Symposium will be mainly oriented at the ecological and chemical status of European rivers and waters, Integrating Policies, EU WFD, Biodiversity Strategy and Green Deal.
