Water Research School annual meeting in Luleå


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.  Water Research School group picture at Gråsjälören.
