Every year, the GW4 Water Security Alliance brings stakeholders and academics together during a one-day conference to discuss water research challenges. Our 2019 event gathered over 120 attendees, with keynote speakers from UNESCO and the Environment Agency. A summary of the event can be found here.
This year’s conference will provide attendees with opportunities to learn about the breadth of research taking place across the GW4, share water-related research experiences with academics and stakeholders, as well as helping to inspire and support the next generation of water researchers.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, this year our annual conference will be held online over three afternoons. This format recognises the new working arrangements that are operating across both the university and business environment. This will also enable our friends from Global Water Futures in Canada to be able to attend.
A mix of informative webinars and interactive workshops will be delivered, enabling attendees to reconnect with colleagues from across the GW4, to forge new collaborative relationships and to learn from the growing community of PhD students working across our alliance.
Please register now to attend so that we can keep you updated on the conference plans.

Tue 2nd: Jonathon Knight, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research, University of Bath, Dr John Pomeroy Global Water Futures, Canada, Prof. Andrew Johnson, CEH.
