ITC will organize 2 technical conferences in the days preceding the next partners´ meeting in Canary Islands
Next partners´ meeting of MONITOOL Project will take place in Gran Canaria on May 2019 hosted by ITC. Additionally, the event is the opportunity to celebrate two technical conferences, one in each province, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Las Palmas.
The aim of these two events is to present the MONITOOL project to the attendees, as well as to disseminate the use of most commonly used passive sampling techniques to evaluate chemical status of waters, both for metals and for organic pollutants. Next, the DGTs (Diffusive Gradients in Thin Films) will be presented in depth, as the passive sampling device used in MONITOOL project.
The conference will have the participation of Jean-Luis Gonzalez, researcher from IFREMER since 1991 in the field of the coastal environment; M. Jesus Belzunce, researcher from AZTI since 1998 in the field of marine environment (particularly in ports, estuaries and coasts); and Vanessa Millán, researcher in Water Department at ITC.
The first edition of these technical conferences will take place on May 21st in the headquarters of ITC in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Gran Canaria will host the second edition next day (May 22nd), in the headquarters of ITC in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Two opportunities for MONITOOL to continue spreading the acquired knowledge during the project tasks, in addition to share the results of the DGTs deployed on sampling campaigns last year.
Target audience comprises government agencies, person responsible for Water Framework Directive compliance, researchers, laboratories, environmental consulting companies, university students and other professionals and business related.
