Prof. Bas Amelung (Wageningen University & Research, WUR), coordinator of the SIMTWIST project, visits the Institute
From November 25th to 30th, Prof. Bas Amelung, Assistant Professor, from Department of Environmental Sciences at Wageningen University & Research (WUR), visited the Institute. Prof. Amelung has extensive experience about the impact of climate change in tourism activity, with special emphasis on its environmental connotation.
On November 29, 2019, in the Conference Room (0018P1019) of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the University of Alicante, will be held at 10:00 a.m. the act of presentation of the Doctoral Thesis of Mr.Rubén A. Villar Navascués, FPU predoctoral researcher at the Interuniversity Institute of Geography, with the title "Supply systems and urban-tourist water consumption trends in the municipalities of the Alicante coastline (2000-2017)". The Thesis has been directed by María Hernández Hernández and Antonio M. Rico Amorós, both Professors at the University of Alicante.
The 1st edition of the MOOC “Geographical analysis of natural risk: Perceive, plan and manage uncertainty” has concluded and we want to thank you for your interest and participation in it.
Thank you very much for making us confident and for sharing your experience, but also for sharing your suggestions, which will undoubtedly help us to be more competitive and be up to the audience, increasingly prepared and demanding.
