Amsterdam Water Science Symposium 2015

In November 2015, Amsterdam Water Science organised a two-day symposium to mark the start of its programme. The conference brought together many enthusiastic participants and led to a series of pilot projects in which researchers and students of the Amsterdam universities collaborated with public and private parties.
