On 29th and 30th of October 2015 the Centre ran a two-day training workshop in the Environmental Research Centre on “Quality assured data from water quality monitoring programmes: practice and practicalities” for 10 staff of the National Institute for Environmental Research, South Korea. 

Ensuring the generation of quality data through the application of quality assurance from field collection to laboratory analysis was covered in theory and in practice with the assistance of the Environmental Protection Agency and Cork County Council Water Quality Laboratories. Staff from UCC also presented alternative approaches to monitoring using biological field methods, modelling and novel sensor development.
