Project Partners

REFRESH brings together rivers, lakes and wetlands scientists with expertise in hydrology, hydrochemistry and ecology, aquatic modelling and social science. Many of these have worked together previously on EU funded projects under FP5 and FP6. Of the 25 partners in REFRESH, 17 were involved in the FP6 Project Euro-limpacs which brought together these scientific communities in an Integrated Project for the first time.
