A group of PhDs and researchers from the sub-department of Environmental Technology at Wageningen University (The Netherlands) is travelling to Chile in March 2019. The objective of this trip is to promote, strengthen and establish relationships that facilitate the transfer of knowledge in the field of sustainable water treatment and water management. We would like to invite you to join this international seminar organized during their visit to Santiago.
