Water JPI International Conference on, Emerging pollutants in freshwater ecosystems in Helsinki on 6-7 June 2018

Millions of Europeans receive high quality drinking water every day. However, the provision of safe water for drinking purposes is threatened by, amongst other factors, the improper disposal of chemicals, animal and human wastes, pesticides, emerging pollutants, and emerging risks from “established” pollutants, aged water supply infrastructures, sub-optimal water management, and natural hazards.
The main objectives of the 2018 Water JPI Conference are to (i) showcase the results of the research achieved through Water JPI activities and especially address their impact under selected themes, mainly “Emerging pollutants”, (ii) raise awareness of the Water JPI and its impact, and (iii) enhance dialog between researchers, stakeholders and policy makers.
