Co-Chairman - Organising Commitee
Dear young and senior water professionals,
It is great honor to be involved in the organization of the 2nd IWA Polish YWP Conference 2020, which is going to be held in Warsaw, Poland. The Conference’s location is not a coincidence, Warsaw a place with an extensive history, also known as “Phoenix City” because of complete reconstruction after World War II, which had left almost all buildings in ruins. Nowadays, the city is the 8th most-populous in the European Union as well as significant Centre of Research, Development, Innovation and Business. The Old Town of Warsaw was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Other main architectural attractions include the Castle Square with the Royal Castle and the iconic King Sigismund’s Column, the Wilanów Palace, the Łazienki Palace, St. John’s Cathedral, Main Market Square. Moreover, Warsaw became one of the most dynamic and livable metropolitan cities in the Central and Eastern Europe as well as appreciated tourist and business destination.
I’m sure that the meetings during this YWP Conference will be intensive and the debates vivid, that participants will have an opportunity to develop and maintain future cooperation between industry-business and academic research. This time the Programme Committee will be represented by such great scientists, as Prof. Kwietniewski and Prof. Mąkinia, so I have no doubt that we will have a very high level of Conference. Those interested in a cutting edge fundamental applied research and new approaches to planning, design and operations of water and wastewater facilities should consider attending.
I hope this event, similar to 1st IWA Polish YWP Conference 2017, which was held in Cracow, will bring a great success to all participants and will help to develop bridge between IWA and Polish YWP Chapter. We look forward for great participation of the Polish YWPs, but we are open to receive delegates from around Europe and worldwide.
