  • 1. OPENING DOORS - Scientific Workshops for Young ResearchersAn initiative aimed at promoting links between young scientists from the UK and SpainWORKSHOP on “The ecology of inland waters: Concepts, connections, climate, conservation andcommunication.”Estación Biológica de Doñana (Huelva, Spain), 13-17 October 2013The British Council (BC) in Spain in collaboration with the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) isorganising a series of scientific workshops to provide opportunities for researchers from the UK and Spain tomeet face-to-face for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and information on priority topics and to explorefuture areas of research and collaboration.The workshop will consist of 10 keynote presentations of 30min each (5 from Spanish researchers and 5from British researchers) and 15min presentations from the rest of the participants, early to mid careerresearchers (10 from the UK and 10 from Spain) to be selected from those applying. The language for allpresentations will be English.Keynote speakers:Prof. Brian Moss (University of Liverpool) Freshwater research: key and global or going nowhere?Prof. Andy Green (Estación Biológica de Doñana) Freshwater birds as major players on the aquatic stageDr. Jonathan Grey (Queen Mary London) Connectivity: cornucopia or curse for inland waters?Dr. Isabel Reche (Universidad de Granada) Inland waters as a model system to study microbialmetacommunitiesProf. Stephen Maberly (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology) Climate change effects on the functioning ofinland waters: pervasive influence or minor factor?Prof. Jordi Catalan (CREAF) Predictability requires understanding: some paradoxes on persistent organicpollutants and aquatic organismsDr. Nigel Willby (University of Stirling) What can landscape-scale approaches teach us about theconservation and restoration of freshwaters?Dr. Nuria Bonada (Universidad de Barcelona) Biological traits, evolutionary history, and communityassembly of freshwater biodiversityDr. Isabelle Durance (Cardiff University) Freshwater ecosystem services: a new way of communicating theimportance of freshwaters and freshwater biodiversityDr. Emili García-Berthou (Universidad de Girona) Invasion biology and inland waters: from conservation tocommunicationThe workshop is limited to a total of about 30 participants to be selected from those applying.
