Info Day


Eawag’s Info Day is devoted once a year to a current research topic. The event is aimed at anyone who is interested in the subject, and particularly experts working in the field in focus. The core of the event consists of lectures by Eawag’s resident experts, supplemented with specific contributions from external speakers. The Eawag Info Day serves as a forum for knowledge exchange between academia and practitioners, allowing plenty of time for plenary discussions as well as informal conversations.

Special 2024 Info Day

Protecting blue-green biodiversity - Conclusion of the "Blue-Green Biodiversity" research initiative by Eawag and WSL

Tuesday, 3 September 2024, Dübendorf

Human life and well-being depend largely on nature and its biodiversity. However, biodiversity is declining drastically due to human intervention. In the joint research initiative "Blue-Green Biodiversity", Eawag and WSL are investigating biodiversity at the interface between water and land. The aim is to quickly understand the current changes in biodiversity and to support policy-makers and practitioners in developing suitable conservation measures. At the Special 2024 Info Day, the research institutes will jointly present their findings in lectures and discussions on the podium and with the audience. In addition to the ecological aspects of biodiversity conservation, the sociological and political dimensions will also be highlighted.
