Exchanging knowledge with the world – AIWW 2021

Published: 1 November 2021

With two keynote speeches on Clean water and ecosystem restoration’ and ‘Risk and Resilience’ and expert representation on the Round Table on Pollution-free rivers we are delighted to be able to exchange knowledge in person again during the Amsterdam International Water Week (AIWW).

Hans Aaldrink, expert subsurface and groundwater quality and coordinating our contribution to the event says; “Connecting science, cities, industries, and utilities water could serve as a catalyst to solve societal challenges and contributes to achieve to SDG’s.”

The sixth edition of the Amsterdam International Water Week (AIWW) takes place on 1 – 5 November. The overall theme is Blue-Green deals with Integrated Solutions.

Our special session on MarkerWadden an archipelago of nature islands in the Markermeer lake as a solution for biodiversity loss and water quality decline is also possible to visit in person.

But we do understand that outside the borders of the European Union it may be still difficult to travel. A good reason for the special session on water scarcity for industries (WaterLoupe) to opt for an online session.

Tickets are still available
