SAVE THE DATE: H2020 FOWARIM project 1st Summer School in Malta on September 4-7, 2017

Water is vital for life on Earth. A healthy water sector is critical to economic growth and competitiveness. Complex water-security challenges that Europe is facing forced the European Union to provide sufficient investments for the latest water treatment technologies, recycle and re- use water.

 

We are pleased to announce that Europe for Business Ltd, in partnership with the H2020 FOWARIM project partners, will hold the 1st Summer School in Paola, Malta on 4-7 September 2017.

 

FOWARIM Summer School aims to enhance the potential of Malta College of Arts, Science & Technology to run national and international scientific research projects in water agriculture through a joint summer school. This Summer School stimulates learning not only through the cases of success but also through failures.
