3.2 Sediment dynamics and understanding – transfer of knowledge, tools and skills to professionals

The aim of this project is to transfer the technical knowledge generated in Work Package 1 “Data” and Work Package 2 “Model” to professionals working in the consultancy sector, the Directorate General for Public Works and Water Management, water authorities and dredging and engineering companies to demonstrate the capabilities and limitations of the new data analysis and modeling tools. Stakeholders have expressed their interest in different types of knowledge, depending on the character of their activities. In this project we identify two different levels of transfer of knowledge. The scientific challenge is to translate the scientific outputs such that they are understandable to non-expert stakeholders and convey the vital aspects of the system understanding for the application context.
