SCIMAP User Group Meeting 2022

Durham Cathedral and the River Wear, Durham England

The 2022 SCIMAP User Group Meeting will take place on the 20th of September 2022 in Durham, UK. At this event, you can share how you have been using SCIMAP and we will provide some training on the new SCIMAP-Flood approach. The workshop meeting aims to increase the connectivity of the SCIMAP user community and provide a forum for sharing knowledge and approach to tackling diffuse pollution and mitigating flood hazards with NFM and nature-based solutions.

The user group meeting this year is taking place the day before the CaBA Catchment Data Forum meeting, so if you are travelling to Durham for that event, it is simple to also attend the SCIMAP UGM 2022.
