International Conference Water Science for Impact

As partner we are delighted to announce the Water Science for Impact conference, which will take place from 16 – 18 October 2018 at Wageningen University & Research (WUR) in Wageningen, The Netherlands. 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.

Water Science for Impact will exchange information about water quality and quantity in the broadest sense. The conference brings together leaders in science, policy, and the public and private sectors to examine water science from a multidisciplinary perspective.  Water science is crucial to expanding our understanding of water quality and quantity related issues that humankind encounters. Such understanding is key towards identifying critical water-related challenges, developing novel solutions and implementing steps that contribute to achieving the sustainable development goals. We welcome contributions from both the natural and social sciences, as well as from stakeholders and decision makers and from private and public sectors.

Deltares will (co-)host several sessions throughout this conference. In case you would like to get in touch with us in advance, please send us an e-mail.
