The Italian training on Biotic Ligand Models (BLMs) and Bioavailability of Metals’ was held on 24th June 2016 at the Italian Institute of Water Research (CNR-IRSA) near Milan in Italy. The training day provided a brief insight into the development and use of BLMs, currently available user-friendly tools, data requirements, implementation of bioavailable EQSs under the WFD, and a short exercise with M-BAT using European freshwater data.
