On 29th and 30th June, after the 2nd Training event, a small-group workshop with training for the Bulgarian authorities and experts was organised by our BG-GI-BAS project partner.
Since the live meetings with an on-site demonstration of sampling equipment and the implementation of the SIMONA harmonized protocols are of great importance for the efficient uptake of the project results by water management practitioners (authorities), small-group workshops were planned in the WP8, activity 2. Capacity building: presentation, dissemination and integration of the SIMONA project results and upgrades within already existing events and small-group interactive training events in the PP. The workshop with training addresses all SIMONA national target groups that are active or interested in harmonized sampling, laboratory analyses and evaluation methods and are involved in the Danube river basin monitoring and management. The workshop is held on the Day of the Danube – 29.06. and continues with a half-day program at the lake and reserve Srebarna, which is closely connected with the Danube River.
