Open Universiteit at EGU22 Earth Sciences Conference and Dresden Nexus
The Open University of the Netherlands will participate in the annual meeting of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) in Vienna from 23 to 27 May 2022. After two years online, this scientific meeting will take place in a hybrid format. This year, two Master's students in Environmental Sciences and two young researchers from the Department of Environmental Sciences, which falls under the Faculty of Science, have been selected by the organisation to present their research results.
Participation Open University
Master's student Luuk Timmer and junior lecturer Ruben Hage will each present their research resulting from the H2020 EIFFEL project on the use of climate data, PhD researcher Borjana Bogatinoska will present her latest findings from her PhD research within the Interreg Co-Adapt project, and (former) MSc student Barbara Goudsmit will present her MSc thesis findings that she is now continuing as a PhD student at NIOZ and Utrecht University. In addition, more lecturers from the Open University participate in the conference as co-authors. With more than 16,000 participants (pre-corona), this is one of the largest conferences in earth sciences worldwide. Themes this year are close to the heart of faculty interdisciplinary research, such as Responsible data modelling for climate sciences, Local solutions that have global impact, and Impact of land use on food production and 'natural' hazards.
In three scientific sessions, Borjana Bogatinoska, Ruben Hage and master's student Luuk Timmer will present their research work on climate adaptation. Master's student Goudsmit recently completed her graduation research at the Open University on paleoclimate, which she carried out in cooperation with Utrecht University. She is now continuing this research as PhD research at the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ in Yerseke/Texel) and Utrecht University.
Interested parties can register to attend the EGU General Assembly virtually. Master students can participate free of charge. More information on registration for the event can be found on the EGU22 website. During the Earth Science Conference, the sessions will be hybrid, allowing you to participate online.
The research by Luuk Timmer and Ruben Hage stems from the multi-year European research project EIFFEL. EIFFEL, led by the Technical University of Athens (ICCS), is a collaboration of several research institutes and professionals in five European studies on applications for Earth observation for climate change adaptation and mitigation. The Open University is responsible for the co-design and user analysis for these applications within the five study areas, and for the modelling of land-use change within one of the studies: the Aa/Weerijs brook area south of Breda. Together with IHE-Delft and the Province of Brabant, the impact of adaptation measures in water management on carbon sequestration in the soil is investigated. Project leader on behalf of the Open University is university lecturer Dr Angelique Lansu, with Dr Jikke van Wijnen as lecturer/examiner for Luuk Timmer and Ruben Hage and Borjana Bogatinoska as researchers. This research falls within the research programme LIRS of the Science Faculty of the Open University. The EIFFEL research runs from 2021 to 2024 and is funded by the EC Horizon 2020 programme (LC-CLA-19-2020-Building a low carbon, climate resilient future: climate action in support of the Paris Agreement).
Borjana Bogatinoska's presentation is a result of her PhD research within the multi-year project Co-Adapt: Climate Adaption through Co-Creation. Co-Adapt is carried out together with the Open University by a consortium of water managers from the Netherlands, England, France and Belgium. One of the eight brook catchments with its stakeholders in this study is also research area in EIFFEL: the Aa/Weerijs brook catchment. The Open University is responsible for the research within Co-Adapt and for the digital learning for future water professionals, with associate professor Dr Angelique Lansu as project leader, and Dr Jean Hugé, Ruben Hage and Borjana Bogatinoska as researchers. This research falls within the research programme LIRS of the Science Faculty of the Open University. The Co-Adapt project runs from 2019 to 2023 and is partly funded by the EU Interreg programme 2Seas.
Dresden Nexus Conference 22
Overlapping with EGU22 is the fully online Dresden Nexus Conference, which focuses on strengthening biodiversity while addressing other challenges in society (e.g. climate change, urban and regional development, and circular economy). At this conference, Borjana Bogatinoska will present her sub-research on the use of consensus techniques in the collaborative design of natural solutions in water management.
