The first SCIMAP user group meeting will take place on the 26 October 2012 in London. The aim of this meeting is to bring together the current users of SCIMAP from the Environment Agency, Natural England, the River Trusts, Wildlife Trusts and others to discuss how they have used the tools, to learn from each other and to see (and steer) where SCIMAP is going in the future. The day will include keynote presentations from both the Environment Agency and the Rivers Trust. These talks will then be supported by a set of user case studies about how they are managing the environment with the help of SCIMAP.
The main meeting will run from 10:30 to 15:30 to allow people time to get home. However, there will be a post meeting ‘SCIMAP Surgery’ with some of the team to talk about any problems that you may be having or suggestions that you may have for the future.
The meeting will take place at Mary Sumner House, Westminster, London, and will be free to attend. The costs of this meeting have been supported by Durham University and the Environment Agency.
To attend the meeting, please register at this form. You will need to provide details about how you are using SCIMAP in your organisation or how you are thinking of using the approach. This description should be approximately 300 words.
