BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialgues meets AquaNES

Water management requires intensive cooperation across sectors and disciplines. Yet, bringing oneself to thinking beyond the individual silo is a hard and continuous process; especially as the natural and economic environments become more and more unpredictable.

 BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues is the leading platform in Germany to bridge the gap between research and practice, across sectors. This year it partners with the EU-funded Horizon 2020 project AquaNES. The project demonstrated the feasibility and effectiveness of combined natural and engineered systems for water treatment systems (cNES).

During the BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues conference, AquaNES presents the innovations that emerged from the collaboration of utilities, industry and academia. A panel discussion with representatives from water utilities and the private sector beyond the AquaNES network allow for a multi-faceted exchange on water management challenges, including those that crystallized from past BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues.

The program's top topics include:

  • Leaving no one behind in access to water and sanidation - The potential of nature-based solutions

  • Adressing water management challenges with cNES

  • Flexible use of modified soil filters to treat wastewater treatment plant effluent and combined sewer overflow

  • AquaNESresponses to water management challenges: International demonstration cases for combined natural and engineered systems
