Last November 3rd, 2023, IHE Delft hosted a panel discussion organised by the Young Netherlands Centre for River studies (Y-NCR) on the challenges and opportunities of interdisciplinarity in river studies. Five panellists took part in this conversation, including two experts of the NEXOGENESIS project: Stefania Munaretto, Senior Scientific Researcher,  KWR and our project coordinator Janez Susnik, Associate Professor,  IHE Delft.  This discussion was centred around interdisciplinary collaboration, stakeholder engagement, participatory decision-making and how to make it work in practice.
