9th July 2018 15:00 to 16:00

The aim of this webinar is to disseminate findings of the workshop held in Birmingham (7th March 2018).

For joining instructions please contact us.

Purpose of workshop: Foster relations between monitoring and modelling communities within UKEOF partner organisations to promote two way interaction.  In particular, the role of modelling in helping design monitoring programmes will be explored.  

Outcomes: Knowledge exchange over good practice, greater understanding of monitoring/modelling, awareness of the efficiencies and opportunities afforded by innovative monitoring.  Identification of opportunities for enhanced engagement between monitoring and modelling communities, priorities for future activities (including research), and where UKEOF can facilitate.
