12th Eastern European Young Water Professionals Conference: Water Research and Innovations in a Digital Era

Local Organizer: Riga Technical University, Latvian water and wastewater works Association, Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development Republic of Latvia

Dear colleagues - young professionals of the water sector, In May 2020 we organise our 12th Eastern European IWA YWP Conference for Young Water Professionals, this conference will take place in the pearl of the Baltic sea - Riga! For this conference, with a title Water Research and Innovation in a Digital Era. We have prepared following program: • Two days will be dedicated to scientific presentations. This part of the conference will take place in the Riga Technical University. In 2020 we would like to give more opportunities for YWPs who would like to prepare an oral presentations. So the conference concept includes: two parallel sessions will run at the same time, one focusing on water management, another on water treatment technologies; however coffee breaks and lunch will take place in one common area to support networking between YWPs. Moreover, there will be long and short type of presentation: 10 minutes for a standard presentation and 3 minutes for a short presentation, this presentation can be completed by a poster (not must). We believe that in this way we help YWPs successfully apply for financial support, as for most of the countries a poster presentation is not sufficient reason to travel abroad. • An extended social program which will take part during the conference days: dinners, meetings, technical and cultural tours and more! The Organising Committee will help you to obtain a visa if it will be needed. As during the last years, we have a reduced registration fee for the young water professionals coming from low-income countries; additional reduction is foreseen for IWA members. Several workshops will be free of charge. “During the last 10 years we became a little IWA family...”, this comment I have heard so many times during our last conference in Budapest. And I would like to invite You to be part of it! Use this chance to join our international network of young water professionals. Hope to see you soon in Riga!
