On the conference day, the following two key-note speakers are presenting in English:
  • Transboundary River Restoration: Experiences from the River Rhine Basin - Dr. Laura Poinsot, member of the secretariat of the International Commission for the Protection of the Rhine.
  • River Restoration in Spain and Portugal - Carles Ferrer Boix, Centro Iberico de Restauración Fluvial.
Two Norwegian participants will present "take home messages" from this years RRC conference in the UK. Other parts of the programme will include presentations on completed and ongoing projects in Norway, research news and a finally part with focus on riparian vegetation.
The seminar will be in Norwegian language, except the two international key-note speakers.
On the excursion (second day), a visit to a 5,5 km restoration project that daylights a river that was previously covered for landslide prevention, housing, roads and agriculture. It can be seen  how the restoration has been done in semi-urban as well as agricultural area, and also how measures for landslide prevention and ecological improvement have been balanced.
