Water at the Centre: Fostering innovation through partnership for a sustainable water future
Welcome to a conference at KTH where we put water at the centre. For a full day we will look at advances in science and technology that helps us manage water – our most precious resource – sustainably now and in the future.
Water has always connected people and therefore we need your involvement to make this event successful. This is how you can contribute:
Are you a researcher at KTH?
Come and present your water research at the Science Fountain; parallel tracks of short paper presentations. Welcome!
Are you one of KTH collaboration partners?
Share you perspective and experience of water collaboration at the Partner Poolside; open conversations between partners and KTH researchers. Please send us your ideas; what do you want to talk about?
The day will end with a strategic panel discussion on education and competence development. What kind of knowledge do we need to ensure safe and healthy water in our societies, now and 2050?
