5th distance education e-learning Summer School on "Wastewater and Biosolids Management" (WWSS19) 

The Hellenic Open University welcomes you to the 5th distance education e-learning Summer School on "Wastewater and Biosolids Management" (WWSS19), taking place in Patras, Greece, July 22 - 27, 2019. This scientific event is organized in the context of the Postgraduate Study Programme “Waste Management. ”

The Summer School started in 2015 and was successfully continued since then with tens of wastewater and biosolids experts from many different countries worldwide (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Germany, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Oman, Philippines, Switzerland, Slovenia, Spain, UK, United Arab Emirates, USA, Tunisia, etc.), as keynote speakers.

The 2019 program follows the strategy of maintaining basic lectures enriched with new topics of interest on the new trends in wastewater and biosolids management technologies and representative case studies. As special features in 2019, the Summer School:

1) will dedicate a session on waste management of the Armed Forces,
2) will include a session, as in 2018, on practical laboratory exercises and data analysis tools for measuring the basic wastewater parameters requested by regulations,
3) will offer the possibility to master and PhD students as well as to wastewater and biosolids professionals, equipment suppliers, public bodies and organizations to present their work by e-posters (a one-page abstract should be sent to [email protected]; the organizer will review this material and will timely inform about the acceptance of the presentation). WWSS19 will offer the Best e-Poster Award to the three best posters (First: 200 euros, Second: 150 euros and Third: 100 euros).
