Initiator for ecosystem restoration

The research is called ' Bridging Thresholds', and includes research into the use of biodegradable structures (BESE) for initiating ecosystem restoration.


The consortium is headed by Tjisse van der Heide of the Radboud University Nijmegen (RUN) and will undertake research over a period of four years. The research is being carried out in close collaboration between the Radboud University Nijmegen (PhD 1 is focusing on biogeochemical processes), the Royal NIOZ (PhD 2 is focusing on physical and hydrodynamic processes), Bureau Waardenburg (post-doc is focusing on up-scaling), water managers, industry and manufacturers.
