‘Water Science for Impact’ Conference

Event details

The international conference on ‘Water Science for Impact’ is being organised as part of the centenary celebrations of Wageningen University & Research. Deltares, KWR, RIVM and PBL are involved in the organisation of this international conference on water research with a societal impact.

The conference will focus on the interaction between science and society in developing solutions for pressing water-related problems as identified in the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The conference has three main themes:

  • Water and Climate Change
  • Water – Energy – Food – Ecosystem Nexus
  • Sustainable Water Quality

Through lectures and poster presentations we will, as KWR, be present along the entire research spectrum: from technologists to microbiologists, and from chemists to social-scientists.

The conference’s programme is available on its website. There is also a Conference App, containing an overview of the programme, speakers and other information. The app can be downloaded from the Google and Apple stores with the keyword: WSI 2018.
