The thematic scope lays the foundation for the nine seminars that are developed by World Water Week’s Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) together with leading convening organizations. Here you can learn more about the nine seminars that will be held in 2021.

The seminars combine high-quality academic papers and interesting keynote speakers to ensure vibrant and innovative discussions.

It is the Scientific Programme Committee that selects the papers that are presented, based on the abstracts’ content and innovation.

To present in the scientific seminars you do not need the backing of an organization and it is a great opportunity to share your research with a wide audience of experts, professionals, and decision-makers. It also gives you a chance to network with experts within your field which might lead to future research collaboration, project development or funding opportunities.
