The Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA) from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), invites you to the first International Symposium of the NICHES project. NICHES aims to promote restorative nature-based solutions in urban water systems to address current problems, such as combined waste and rainwater sewer systems overflows on aquatic ecosystems.
