Following on from the success of the online courses Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure, CEDA and IADC have decided to schedule the 1st onsite course on 27 & 28 September in Oxfordshire (UK).

During the 2-day course you learn how to achieve dredging projects that fulfil primary functional requirements while adding value to the natural and socio-economic systems by acquiring an understanding of these systems in the context of dredging as well as stakeholder engagement throughout a project’s development. Experienced lecturers will describe the latest thinking and approaches, explain methodologies and techniques as well as demonstrate – through numerous practical examples – how to implement the information in practice by engaging workshops and case studies.

For whom

Are you a professional involved in dredging related activities for water infrastructure development and working in government, port authorities, consultancy firms, dredging companies, NGOs, suppliers or ship-builders? Is your ambition to achieve sustainable and resilient water infrastructure or dredging projects that contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals? If the answer to either of these questions is “yes” then do not miss the opportunity to join this course. Whether you are an ecologist, engineer, scientist, regulator or financier, valuable knowledge that can be put into practice right away awaits every participant.

The lecturers

Experienced lecturers will describe the latest thinking and approaches, explain methodologies and techniques as well as demonstrate – through numerous practical examples – how to implement this information in practice by engaging workshops and case studies.

A team of experts is available for the online and live courses. Based on their availability, we put together the lecturers team for each course. The following experts are part of the team:

Guidebook

This course is based on the CEDA-IADC guidebook Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure which was published in 2018. The book gives state-of-the-art guidance on how to design, implement and manage a water infrastructure project with a dredging component to project owners, regulators, consultants, designers and contractors. The presented insights result from a wealth of up-to-date knowledge pooled by an international team of scientists and practising industry experts.
