Scientific and Technical Reviews (STRs)

In the period 1994-2003 EurAqua published 10 Scientific and Technical Reviews (STRs). These used to be an annual event in EurAqua, that provided a forum for discussing specific freshwater research issues and defining joint priorities for European research. STRs addressed topics at the forefront of European freshwater research and defined a benchmark for expertise in the chosen area. Conclusions and recommendations were forwarded to decision-makers and stakeholders.

However, since 2004, it was decided that the STRs should be replaced by other activities within EurAqua. Past STRs are available for download below.
