In-person Conference

For the first time in two years, we are able to meet each other in person again. We are very much looking forward to that special moment. To make the most out of it, we have developed an inspiring and varied programme for the in-person conference during the Amsterdam International Water Week (AIWW2021). AIWW2021 takes place from November 1-5, with the In-person Conference planned for November 3-5.

Curious about the complete program of AIWW 2021?
