The topics will focus on different aspects of multifunctional ecosystems restoration: Dynamic fluvial geomorphology, flow allocation for environmental purposes, choice of species for revegetation, bioengineering best available techniques, permeation of water infrastructure, corrective measures and compensating the impacts caused by hydraulic works, etc.. From the moment of its creation, aims to grow through the collaboration of all participants and is intended to open channels of communication between them.
