RRC Scientific Conference

Scientific Advances in River Restoration (SARR)

Thanks to everyone who attended the 2023 SARR Conference!




The SARR conference synthesised multi-disciplinary global research advances on river restoration and identify critical knowledge gaps. Scientists worldwide met to present their work, discuss ideas, create new collaborations and help advance river restoration science to inform real world solutions.

By attending SARR, delegates witnessed talks delivered by global leaders in river restoration, including Prof. Kirstie Fryirs (Macquarie University, Australia), Prof. Phil Boon (Freshwater Biological Association, UK) and Prof. Ellen Wohl (University of Colorado, USA). We have also liaised with the handling editors of River Research and Applications and Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems about potentially establishing special issues based on research presented at SARR.
