Indo-UK Workshop on Monitoring and Analysis Strategies for Anthropogenic Pollutants in Environmental and Waste Waters
ATREE, under the Researcher Links scheme offered within the Newton Fund, along with British Council and the Royal Society of Chemistry, organized a four day workshop on - 'Monitoring and Analysis Strategies for Anthropogenic Pollutants in Environmental and Waste Waters' between November 12th to November 15th, 2018 in Bengaluru.
The key objective of the workshop was to support both Indian and UK early careers researchers (ECRs) in leading the development of monitoring strategies for chemical parameters that could inform and support national regulatory and policy initiatives in India and UK. The ECRs interacted with a number of international experts and worked towards developing a national strategy for monitoring chemical parameters to build a national database of water quality data.
The workshop was coordinated by Dr. Richard Allan from the James Hutton Institute, UK, Dr. Priyanka Jamwal, Fellow, ATREE and Prof. Gary Fones from the University of Portsmouth, UK. It also saw contributions from leading researchers in UK and India.
