WB7 will deliver the management and organizational structures and processes to ensure the effective delivery of WATCH integrated and to maximize the benefits of this research to all stakeholders, by using the most effective knowledge transfer through the project's training and dissemination activities.
WB7 comprises three main work packages:
Work Performed and Results achieved during Year 2 (February 2008 – 31 January 2009)
Over the course of the second year Work Block 7 has enhanced communication within the consortium, this has been possible due to the establishment of a good management and organisational structure. The scientific management of WATCH is functioning well with regular meetings of the Project Steering Group. All contracts and the consortium agreement are signed and a procedure for including project associates has been well used as there are now six Associate Partners to WATCH with a further two pending acceptance. WATCH has been well represented at various international events through out the year. The first two summer schools were held this year and generated positive responses from the attendees. A number of workshops have increased awareness of WATCH and particularly the workshop in China generated good contacts and resulted in the identification of key future research areas. Members of the External Scientific Advisory Group was able to attend WATCH General Assembly and learn more of the work done by WATCH.
The external and internal websites of the project have been further developed to aid communication and dissemination. Of particular interest are the WATCH Technical Report Series where partners can post their deliverables prior to publication, this has also led to some additional material being published for example a report on the Summer School on Hydrological Drought and Climate Change (Technical Report Number 8). Wherever possible these technical reports are made freely available on this WATCH Web Site.
