We are delighted that the 20th International Symposium on Health-Related Water Microbiology (HRWM) will take place in Vienna, Austria from 15 – 20 September.

The Symposium organized by the IWA HRWM Specialist Group will be hosted by the Interuniversity Cooperation Centre (ICC) Water and Health and supported by the Austrian Society of Hygiene, Microbiology and Preventive Medicine (OGHMP).

The Health-Related Water Microbiology Sub Specialist group is involved in all aspects of public health where water has the role as a vector or reservoir of pathogens. The symposium will bring together researchers, policy makers, water practitioners from academia, industry, engineers, water utilities, public authorities and administration to exchange latest scientific findings, experience and knowhow. We expect around 300 delegates from all around the world.
