Biotechnology for Africa’s sustainable water supply

25.07.2013
The International Conference “Biotechnology for Africa’s sustainable water supply”, January 8-10 2014 in Marrakesh (Morocco), is the closing event of WATERBIOTECH project, a Coordination Action supported by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The scientific conference is complemented by a commercial exhibition showing the state-of-the-art in biotechnology for water treatment.

The WATERBIOTECH-Conference “Biotechnology for Africa’s sustainable water supply” in Marrakesh (Morocco) from January 8-10 2014 will bring together members of WATERBIOTECH consortium in conjunction with national and regional decision makers, water professionals, scientists and practitioners.


The International Conference “Biotechnology for Africa’s sustainable water supply” is the closing event of WATERBIOTECH project, a Coordination Action supported by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). In the course of the WATERBIOTECH project, a consortium comprising international partners is developing a practical approach using biotechnology as a simple and cost-effective method for wastewater treatment in Africa. WATERBIOTECH

The event includes the presentation of scientific papers related to relevant aspects of water management, water treatment and water supply in Africa as well as discussion panels and workshops. The scientific conference is complemented by a commercial exhibition showing the state-of-the-art in biotechnology for water treatment. Development in Africa needs bottom-up approaches in which the necessities of all actors are taken into account as WATERBIOTECH project has pursued.

The network between Africa and Europe resulted from WATERBIOTECH project has led to mutual learning experiences. The intention of this conference is to extend this fruitful cooperation to all participants of this conference and widely disseminate the results of WATERBIOTECH initiative.

HZI researchers developed a bacterial strain that can be used in cancer therapy

Salmonellae are dangerous pathogens that enter the body via contaminated food and can cause severe infections. But these bacteria are also known to target...

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
