Better Thames Network

The Better Thames Network is a NERC funded project, administered by the University of Westminster, devised to support the E.A. and local stakeholders implement the Water Framework Directive (WFD) targets for water quality in the Thames River Basin District.  Its primary objective is to develop and support an interconnected community of scientists and stakeholders who can make a scientific contribution to, or have a role in, implementation of the Thames River Basin Management Plan.  A number of key activities of the Network underpin this primary objective:

• In conjunction with the E.A. and local stakeholders, identify knowledge gaps which can make an effective contribution to achieving “good ecological status” within the Thames River Basin District.
• Map the research community around the Thames River Basin District in order to ascertain which scientists may be able to contribute to the resolution of these knowledge gaps.
• Run a series of workshops to address specific knowledge gaps.
• Develop a web-portal with a searchable database to allow local stakeholders to identify expertise and scientists to identify research project partners.
• Establish networking community (forum) on the web portal where stakeholders may post questions or requests for collaboration and scientists may search for research project partners.
