1st onsite course Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure in April

CEDA and IADC have just announced that they will organise the 1st ONSITE course ‘Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure’ on 5 & 6 April 2022 in The Hague (NL).

According to the two organisations, experienced lecturers will describe the latest thinking and approaches, explain methodologies and techniques as well as demonstrate – through numerous practical examples – how to implement the information in practice by engaging workshops and case studies.

During the course participants learn how to achieve dredging projects that fulfil primary functional requirements while adding value to the natural and socio-economic systems. By understanding these systems both in the context of dredging as well as stakeholder engagement, throughout a project’s development.

The learning objectives of the course include:

  • The role of dredging in the global drive towards more sustainable development;
  • How can water infrastructure be designed and implemented in a more sustainable and resilient way while aligning with the natural and socio-economic systems;
  • How can the potential positive effects of infrastructure development be assessed and stimulated as well as compared with potential negative effects;
  • What equipment and which sediment management options are available today;
  • A brief introduction to the question “What knowledge and tools are available to make sound choices and control the project?”.

At the moment, organisers did not reveal the exact location of the event. Details of the location will be available soon.
