European Commission and Wildlife Estonia invite you to
Riverine LIFE Platform Meeting:
Strengthening populations of fish and other species through re-introduction, removal of barriers and habitats conservation
10th - 12th September 2014, Tartu, Estonia
This is one of a series of platform meetings intended to promote the exchange of experience and networking amongst LIFE beneficiaries, with other key stakeholders also invited. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together LIFE project beneficiaries, organisations and institutions from across Europe to discuss aspects of their projects which address riverine species and habitats conservation in relation to EU biodiversity policy. Given the potential wide range of the discussion the meeting will focus on the following:
• Populations strengthening and re-introduction programmes
All participants are welcome to give a presentation (oral or poster) in relation to the above mentioned topics.
The agenda is being updated in parallel with the registration and the final version will be sent to the registered participants with the delegate pack on 30 July 2014. Please note, that the working language of the conference is English.
