We are delighted to welcome participants to attend the 8th distance education e-learning International Summer School and Workshop on “Wastewater and Biosolids Management” (WWSS23), taking place in Patras, Greece, July 24 – 29, 2023; a scientific event organized in the context of the Postgraduate Study Program “Waste Management”, by the Hellenic Open University (HOU).

The first Summer School of these series was organized on 2015 and since then tens of wastewater and biosolids experts from many different countries worldwide (China, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Germany, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Morocco, Oman, Philippines, Poland, Switzerland, Slovenia, Spain, UK, United Arab Emirates, USA, Tunisia, Turkey, etc.), participated as keynote speakers.

WWSS23 program covers many thematic areas (i.e. energy, adsorption and catalysis, wastewater treatment and climate change, soil and agriculture, microbiology and public health), and offers a technical tour to the WWTP of Aigio, a Poster Session, a Lab Session and two Special Workshops. Participants are given the opportunity to participate by distance education mode or by physical presence to the Hellenic Open University Campus at Patras.

For those who are thirsty for the latest trends in wastewater and biosolids management technologies, interested to be informed about representative case studies around the globe, willing to be trained by attending laboratory and poster sessions, technical tour and workshops, and eager to broaden their networks and cultivate powerful connections, without restrictions of physical presence, this Summer School is the opportunity.

Master and PhD students as well as wastewater and biosolids professionals, equipment suppliers, public bodies and organizations will be able to present their work by e-posters.

The countdown to the WWSS23 has started. Register to the Summer School via its website, and disseminate this educational event.

We are confident that the participants of WWSS23 will both benefit from, and enjoy the program.

We look forward to welcoming you to WWSS23 with a high-quality program.


Sincerely Yours,

Professor Dr. Ioannis K. Kalavrouziotis
