Open Day at Swiss BC Eawag

The Swiss Blue Community Eawag, the Aquatic Research Institute, invites for a Day of Open Doors on Saturday, 14 September, 2024, from 10 AM until 5 PM. Take a look behind the scenes at Eawag – one of the world’s leading water research institutes. As part of the joint Empa-Eawag Campus in Dübendorf, Eawag opens its doors and shows exciting and unexpected things about water.

Water bodies are among the most species-rich habitats and water is one of our most important resources. And in both areas we face demanding and diverse challenges, which Eawag is researching. How will we still have enough clean water and liveable cities in the future if heat and drought increase with climate change? What exactly lives in our waters and how can we save these animals and plants from extinction? What can we do to protect ourselves from flooding if heavy rainfall events increase? Can we improve the purification of our wastewater so that people and the environment remain healthy and how can we recover the valuable ingredients from wastewater at the same time? And how can wastewater be monitored so that it protects us from diseases?
