PhD Symposium 2020

  • 07 Oct 2020 - 08 Oct 2020
  • 09:00
Western Europe

The symposium will provide a unique opportunity for PhD fellows to present their research, receive feedback from a group of experts from IHE Delft, and network with PhDs working on a broad range of topics.

The theme of the 2020 edition is Collaboration for Sustainability: Inter- and trans-disciplinary research to solve water-related issues. We would like to reflect and discuss how different disciplines and non-academic groups have been (or could be) integrated into the research developed by the water community.

Due to the COVID-19 novel, the event will be 100 % online and free of charge on the IHE OpenCourseWare platform (
