This year’s annual meeting of the Water Research School, of which many members of the kretsloppsteknik research group are part of, was hosted by Luleå Tekniska Universitet (LTU) between 7-8 February. Solveig Johannesdottir, Jennifer McConville and Prithvi Simha from our group made it to Luleå for the 2-day event. On the first day, they got to hear about LTU’s current research on urban drainage & stormwater management, VR platforms for visualisation, and the effects of shifting the city centre in Kiruna & Gällivare on urban water and sanitation. Day 2 started with two interesting lectures – the first where Prof. Lennart Elfgren shared his views on ‘how to do a PhD and feel good about it’; the second where Prof. Javier Martin-Torres talked about discovering transcient water on Mars.

The Water Research School is a collaboration between the Swedish Water & Wastewater Association through the research clusters VA-teknik Södra, DRICKS, VA-kluster Mälardalen, and Dag&Nät and Sweden Water Research, involving researchers from seven Universities in Sweden. The aim of the research school is to establish a platform for research education of high international quality within the water sector and support community building and collaboration between individual PhD student, supervisors and Universities.
