3rd Meeting of Hydrologists
19/06/2019 10:48 h.
On June 18, in Masía Mariona, took place the third meeting of the group of hydrologists of the project
The objectives of this participatory workshop were as follows:
• Framing funding opportunities.
• To find synergies between lines of work in order to optimise efforts.
• Finding the right formulation for national proposals.
• Finding the right formulation for European proposals.
• Detect research groups willing to lead a proposal.
The meeting, which brought together twenty-five experts in the world of hydrology, started at 9.30 am and ended at 4.30 pm.
9.30 - 10.00 h Welcome with breakfast and registration of participants
10.00 - 11.30 h Session 1
• Key points of the second day
• Analyses of the proposed research
• Introduction of national and international calls

16.00 - 16.30 h Clonclusion
The need to create a technical working group to study the hydrogeology of the Montseny Natural Park and Biosphere Reserve arose from the first day of the Life Tritó Montseny project expert committee (8 November 2018). At that time, the objectives planned for the work were to get to know the hydrogeological dynamics of the Montseny massif, to establish a hydrological monitoring programme and to ensure the sustainable use of water. In addition to defining a working group, it was necessary to plan the lines of work in order to be able to carry out the research projects and agree on a model that defines the hydrological dynamics of Montseny.
On 14 May, in Masia Mariona, the second day of the group of hydrologists of the project took place. The objectives of this participative workshop were to identify the future lines of research work to understand the hydrological dynamics of Montseny and achieve the following results: Consolidation of the hydrology group; Defining specific needs; Correctly interpreting scientific work, gaps in knowledge and aspects that do not have a scientific consensus; Identifying future lines of work to be followed by the hydrologists involved.
Annelies Broekman and Anabel Sánchez, from CREAF, have dynamised the three hydrologists' conferences held so far.
