University of Pretoria Water Institute: Research Awareness Event about Water-Related Knowledge

Zeitraum: 28.10.2013 - 29.10.2013 Ort: Pretoria Land: Südafrika

At the Water Institute of the University of Pretoria a knowledge-sharing event takes place where results from a wide range of water-related studies will be presented and discussed.

The width and depth of water research undertaken by the university is reflected by the number of diverse water-related scientific publications published in highly reputable scientific journals. A recent Water Research Commission (WRC) study indicates the University of Pretoria to be at the top of the country’s most prolific institutions in the field of water research. The university produced 287 such publications as recorded from 1990 to 2010 (A Pulse Study on the State of Water Research Development in South Africa. A Pouris, 2012, WRC Report No.2199/1/12). During 2012, about 50 water-related publications were recorded.

This clearly reflects on the university‘s on-going focus on finding solutions to Africa’s water challenges. These publications address a wide range of key issues, while providing scientific depth. During the knowledge-sharing event, highly recognised researchers from the University of Pretoria will share with their research findings, addressing topics ranging from water and public health to water and society. At the end of each session time will be allocated for active discussions and debates.
