Workshop on the water-energy nexus

On 31 July and 1 August 2017, the ITAS, together with the Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Solid Waste Management (University Stuttgart) organises an interdisciplinary workshop for modelling and assessing the urban water-energy nexus.

The workshop addresses young scientists dealing with the interdependencies between water and energy use and supply in urban areas. At ITAS, they are given the opportunity to network and exchange their knowledge.

On the first workshop day, participants will deal in moderated groups with questions like: Where are the boundaries of my models? How to consider different sustainability aspects? What are the preconditions for applying innovative solutions? On the second day, participants are invited to discuss drivers and barriers of innovative solutions from different stakeholder perspectives (e.g. administration or users) in order to understand the advantage of interdisciplinary approaches.

Applicants are asked to send a motivational letter to Annika Weiss until 10 July 2017.

The workshop is funded by the Netzwerk Wasserforschung Baden-Württemberg. (28.06.2017)
