15. International Water Technology Conference (IWTC) - 2011 in Alexandria – Egypt

Logo  International Water Technology Association and Bavarian Research Alliance

From May 28-30, 2011, BayFOR will take part in the International Water Technology Conference (IWTC) in Alexandria/Egypt. The objective of the Conference is to bring together experts, researchers, equipment manufacturers and consultants, in order to discuss the latest state of the art in the field of water and wastewater technologies. BayFOR is represented at this international conference with several contributions.

After fourteen years of success, the Conference now aims at collecting all the multidisciplinary expertises that converge into the assessment, management and control of human-hydrological systems.

IWTC offers a broad range of topics, covering different phases of the water cycle and the related knowledge, and wants to stimulate the interaction between experts having different backgrounds, including service providers and stakeholders. Due to the high impact of our activities on general water security concerns, attention will be given to water policies, regulations and emerging water security issues. The event can also be seen as an excellent trade opportunity, since most participants will be potential users and providers of equipments and services.

The preliminary program of the conference is available here.

The Bavarian Research Alliance and the FP7 Environment Project CLIMB will be represented at this international conference with several presentations and an additional CLIMB workshop for relevant Egyptian water specialists from research, policy and industrial application:


  •  “European research funding for MENA countries”
  • "CLIMB - Climate Induced Changes on the Hydrology of Mediterranean Basins – Reducing Uncertainty and Quantifying Risk"
  • "Climate Change Impacts In the Nile Delta – A Perspective from the Climb Project"

To make use of the combined expertise of the international conference participants, Prof. Ralf Ludwig (CLIMB project coordinator), Dr. Isabelle Lajeunesse (responsible for the dissemination of CLIMB results), Prof. Badr Mabrouk (responsible for the CLIMB investigation area Nile Delta) and Dr. Thomas Ammerl (CLIMB Project Manager) will organise a stakeholder meeting on May 30, 2011 from 9.00-12.30 hrs, where the latest research results from CLIMB will be presented and discussed together with the participating decision-makers.
