We are delighted to announce that CIWEM will be collaborating with Aqua Enviro to publish a special issue of the Water and Environment Journal, which will include expanded versions of the papers presented at the EWWM Conference.

Aqua Enviro events are well recognised and respected worldwide. These annual events act as a unique platform to disseminate technological, processes and science advancements in the interface between academia and industry in both water and wastewater areas, which fit perfectly with the scope of the Water and Environmental Journal.

The award will be judged and presented during the conference and is open to students and early career professionals under 35 working in the water industry.

If you would like to showcase your work to over 250 industry professionals and be in with a chance of winning a monetary prize.

Attending conferences is a great way to improve your professional network and expand your knowledge of the industry. Students and early career professionals are also offered significantly reduced rates – please see registration for further details.

“There were ample opportunities given for delegates to absorb cutting edge knowledge in a host of inspirational talks, and have abundant networking opportunities with fellow water industry professionals in between talks, both in person and online.

I was able to meet so many fantastic people willing to share their experiences and offer advice.

As a first-time conference attendee, I would certainly recommend this wonderful event to anyone with a passion for water, whether you are a research student like me, early stage professional or are highly experienced in the water industry, I have no doubt you will learn so much from the experience of others at the conference.”
