Maccaferri Central Europe participated on 14th International Symposium in the field of Water Management and Hydraulic Engineering in Brno, Czech Republic, 8. – 10. September 2015
The original bilateral symposium between civil engineering faculties of Gdansk University of Technology (Poland) and University of Zagreb (Croatia) has been spread to more partner universities – Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (Slovakia), Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje (Macedonia), BOKU University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Vienna (Austria) as well as Brno University of Technology (Czech Republic).
The meetings provide a unique forum for exchange of experience, presentation and discussion of recent research work on different aspects of water and environmental management, including physical and mathematical modelling.
The aim of the conference is to encourage and facilitate the interdisciplinary communication among scientists, engineers and professionals working in water management and hydraulic engineering.
This conference contributes to these goals by inviting the experts from Central Europe that are the members of EU as well as the experts from the South-East-Europe countries, which are not member states yet. The main idea is to exchange experience in the field of water management and hydraulic engineering including aspects of ecosystems and sustainable development. This successful series started in 1984 and nowadays it is regularly organized as a two-annual symposium meeting).
Following articles were presented by our engineers:
- Use of gabion structures as flood mitigation in hydraulic works (J. Adamec, L. Lichý).
- Experience on the use of polymer coated steel net for the protection of dykes against the intrusion of beavers (P. Di Pietro, J. Adamec).
