Call for interest: the results of selection


Among the activities planned to promote the transferability and replicability of the project, on 1st December 2019 the Life Lagoon Refresh Called for Interest to select six sites where transfer and replicate strategy, actions and methods of the Project, through a busy program of visits, preparations of scenarios and activities to follow in the After-Life of the Life Lagoon Refresh. The activity is specifically directed at Water Managers, Researchers, professional and technicians dealing with monitoring, assessment and conservation of EU lagoon and estuarine sites.

Fourteen applications responded to the call, closed on 15th February 2020. The proposals concern estuarine and lagoon sites, both Italian and European, and come from Universities, Local Authorities and environmental associations. The selection, managed by the Project Coordinator (ISPRA), was tough due to the quality applications. ISPRA provided positive feedback to all applicants. Three Italian sites were selected: the Apulian Acquatina di Frigole, some lagoons of Delta Po River from the Veneto Region side, and Punta Alberete and Valle Mandriole from Romagna. The European sites are the lagoon of Albufera in Spain, Hyeres salt marshes in France and the transitional waters of Nestos Delta and Porto Lagos in Greece. A specific initiative on transplantation of aquatic phanerogams will be organized for other participants to the call, specifically interested in the topic (e.g.: Lake Grevelingen - Netherlands, Curonian Lagoon - Lithuania, Berre Lagoon - France,  Wolin and Uznam - Poland).  

Networking activities have been activated with the Life projects (e.g.: Life Primed) that participated to the Call for Interest.

 Congratulations to the winners with whom we have for now postponed visits to 2021, waiting for the health emergency to allow us a little more freedom of movement!
