WACOMA Congress

The EMJMD WACOMA Consortium is organizing an International Conference in Water and Coastal Management (https://www.wacoma.eu/) that will be held online between the 19th-21st July 2021. WACOMA is a multidisciplinary MSc degree that integrates aquatic, environmental and coastal marine sciences to provide a solid knowledge of environmental and legal competencies concerning water and coastal hazard and risk mitigation, adaptation, as well as knowledge of the economic framework of climate change and green economy, coupled to decision making processes. Besides, the program promotes the exchange of information between the academic sector and the coastal users and stakeholders.

The conference is aimed at MSc students who graduated during the academic years 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 and who’s research topic fits within the scope of the conference. If you are a MSc student / alumni at one of the universities from the SEA-EU Alliance, you could benefit from one of their scholarships and register for free. SEA-EU is funding up to three registration fees from each of the following universities: Bretagne Occidentale, Kiel, Gdańsk, Split and Malta. Funding will be assigned on a “first-arrived-first-served” basis. Non-funded students will have to pay a registration fee of 75€. Don’t miss out this opportunity!    

Each of the conference’s thematic sessions will be inaugurated with a plenary talk, and several talks from specialized companies will also be held. Thus, the WACOMA Conference is an excellent meeting point for students and professionals within the water and coastal management discipline. It provides a very important occasion for the scientific dissemination of the results obtained by MSc students and/or alumni through their thesis research work. Besides, researchers and professionals of the sector will have the opportunity to present state-of-the-art studies.

We have extended the deadline for abstracts’ submissions until June 15th 2021. They must follow the template provided.
