NERC Call for participants: Using natural processes to reduce flood risk workshop

NERCNERC, the EA and Defra are interested in identifying the key environmental research priorities related to using natural processes to reduce flood risk, with a view to potentially developing a collaborative research programme in this area. To support this process a scoping workshop will be held on 09 June 2016.  This is a great opportunity to contribute towards a potential funding stream at its inception.
