OneAquaHealth multidisciplinary consortium advances environmental research


The last week in May, University of Oslo hosted the second consortium meeting in the OneAquaHealth project. In total, 25 participants from all over Europe and several of the 14 partners were able to have at least one person present for the two days the meeting took place. The Consortium Meeting was hybrid, which allowed for online participation for those partners that could not participate in person.

OneAquaHealth is currently in a period where several tasks are ending, and new tasks will start. The meeting was therefore used to get an overview and discuss what has been done and what is the next steps. In addition, the meeting was used to align all of the exciting and extensive activities that are currently ongoing in the project. At the Consortium meeting, we also discussed synergies in the project and how we can both learn from and build on other activities that are being conducted by different partners in the OneAquaHealth project. A central discussion was how we can utilise each other’s competence and learn from each other as we have researchers in the project from several fields such as biology, medicine, informatics etc.

The Consortium meeting ended with a guided walk to some of the streams in Oslo that are close to the University of Oslo. After the meeting, two partners stayed behind in Oslo to collect samples from all the 10 streams in Oslo and the green space related to them. In total, there was collected samples from 18 sites.
