One of the most important challenges confronting the world today is Water Quality and Water Management. Climate change, social and economic development, local conflicts and the complexities of the international political system all affect the availability and quality of this most vital commodity.

Accordingly, we have designed a course for students, young scientists and professionals working in water microbiology, who wish to enrich their knowledge and technical expertise in the field. We believe that the course gives participants a real opportunity to enhance their qualifications and career potential. The course offers participants a high level of training, while the methods and techniques covered are regularly updated to take on board the latest scientific developments in water microbiology. We shall also invite international experts to present and discuss specific or emerging issues, as part of the course.

The specializations offered are:

  1. a) Drinking water microbiology
  2. b) Swimming and Recreational Waters



Two weeks in Greece.

Participants may, if they so wish, spend two weeks in Greece, one before and one at the end of the course. An Introductory week at the beginning and a Final week for practicing water analyses in an Accredited University Laboratory.
