Advances in Water Research & Innovation: 1998 to 2023 and beyond

In August 2023, we will proudly be celebrating the Centre for Water Systems' (CWS) 25th anniversary and we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a two-day celebration event to mark this special occasion: 'Advances in Water Research & Innovation: 1998 to 2023 and beyond' #cws25.

This event will take place at the University of Exeter's Streatham Campus from Thursday 31st August to Friday 1st September 2023. On Day 1, we will celebrate our notable achievements over the past 25 years and on Day 2, we will look forward together to the next 25 years.

We would like to invite all past and present CWS members (including staff, postgraduate research students and visitors), and academic and industrial colleagues to join us in our celebrations.

We hope to see as many of you there as possible - so, please save the date!
