The 5th European River Restoration Conference (ERRC) will take place 11-13 September 2013 in Vienna, Austria.
The ERRC will focus on mainstreaming different policy fields and integrating river restoration in them. Rivers and the waters they contain are the life blood of the European landscape but they need protection and restoration. This event provides an opportunity to share and learn about the successes and challenges of river restoration and be a part of the revival of rivers in Europe. The discussion topics will include sustainable flood protection, rebalancing water use measures, environmental resilience, the enhancement of multiple use areas, land use, and land-use planning.
In addition, the European River Prize (estimated at approximately 100,000€) will be awarded for the first time. In addition to promoting organisations with excellent achievements in river restoration, the Prize aims to enhance connections with the corporate sector. The winner of the European River Prize will also be shortlisted for the International River Prize.
