The Ecohydraulics Committee brings together specialists from different disciplines to discuss, compare and evaluate methods in Ecohydraulics including end-user-oriented recommendations. The scope of this session is to get an overview from both experts and young researchers around the world about the challenges that the Ecohydraulics community, including researchers and stakeholders, still face today in relation with real world application of Ecohydraulics solutions. We expect that this session will prompt fruitful discussions about possible solutions and future perspectives.

We have proposed some questions for the discussion part, but feel free to contact us at and/or if you have any specific question or views that you would like to share or discuss with us.
