Open forum discussion about the Gulf Model Community
During this interactive session you can get in touch directly with the 'Gulf Model Community' to discuss the future of our Community and share your ideas for research topics and collaboration. For instance, how could the Gulf Model Community support your research topics of interest? What do you expect from the Community and how could it serve your needs best? The discussion will be moderated by the Deltares GMC team. Please let us know in the registration form what you would like to discuss.
