Postponed International Passive Sampling Workshop, IPSW Utrecht 2020

This time the event will focus on how science and policy relate to passive sampling and will include some interactive sessions never done before.

On behalf of the organizers (Deltares and Rijkswaterstaat-WVL), we like to invite you to the 12th International Passive Sampling Workshop and Symposium (IPSW 2020) to be held in Utrecht, the Netherlands. This time the event will focus on how science and policy relate to passive sampling and will include some interactive sessions never done before. Policymakers who are involved in their work with WFD monitoring and reporting of the results to the EU are specially invited to join this year’s edition of IPSW 2020. The platform helps communication of important topics on the use of the latest techniques for passive sampling of undesirable substances, but also to develop educational activities that are part of various projects. The IPSW may also be used as a venue for satellite workshops related to practical methods basic skills, or international research projects. And this time the organizing parties not only want to include scientists but also policy makers.
