GW4 Water Security Alliance Webinar Series

February 12, 2021 - June 11, 2021

The GW4 Water Security Alliance (WSA) is the largest UK water research consortium – and one of the largest worldwide.

The GW4 WSA will be running a weekly webinar series for the academic year 2020-2021. The series features a guest speaker each week and is aimed at stimulating discussion and knowledge exchange between academics, researchers, water professionals and students.
The series runs every Friday, from 14:30-15:30, and is held on Zoom. The sessions include a 30-40 minute presentation, informal Q&A/discussions, and they are a great way to form new links both inside and outside your University.

You can register to attend via this link.
