Experts from TECHNEAU (WA 4) are engaged together with local water experts and stakeholders. The seminars are aimed at operators, researchers, regulators and technology suppliers.


The first training seminar on risk assessment took place in Lisbon and this seminar, the second one, will be held in Oslo, Norway. This seminar will highlight the water situation and risks in water supply systems in Northern Europe. The seminar will be run by Chalmers and organized by SINTEF and
