“Inspired by Nature: Combining Natural and Engineered Systems in Water Management

Water management requires intensive cooperation across sectors and disciplines. Yet, bringing oneself to thinking beyond the individual silo is a hard and continuous process; especially as the natural and economic environments become more and more unpredictable. BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues is the leading platform in Germany to bridge the gap between research and practice, across sectors.

This year it partners with the EU-funded Horizon 2020 project AquaNES. The project demonstrated the feasibility and effectiveness of combined natural and engineered systems for water treatment systems (cNES).

During the BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues conference, AquaNES presents the innovations that emerged from the collaboration of utilities, industry and academia. A panel discussion with representatives from water utilities and the private sector beyond the AquaNES network allow for a multi-faceted exchange on water management challenges, including those that crystallized from past BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues.

The event offers various interactive formats:

  • to learn how cNES can help water and wastewater utilities to adapt to challenges driven by climate change, legal developments and public expectations
  • to interact with operators of cNES and share experiences
  • to get insight into the wider benefits of cNES and
  • to discuss about prospects for and barriers to application of cNES

We invite technology providers, utilities, relevant authorities and others players in the water sector to join. We are looking forward to thrilling discussions about combined natural and engineered systems for a water-safe future!
