About the Water JPI Conference

The 3rd Water JPI Conference is organized under the motto “FROM RESEARCH TO PRACTICE: POLLUTANTS, PATHOGENS AND ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCES IN THE WATER CYCLE” and takes place as a hybrid event due to the pandemic situation. The central themes of the event are pollutants, pathogens and antibiotic resistance in the water cycle. The focus is on the transfer from science to application. Therefore, the event is not only aimed at the scientific community, but explicitly also at companies, associations, municipalities and utility companies.
