IWA Specialist Conference


Global Challenges: Sustainable Wastewater Treatment and Resource Recovery

26-30 October 2014
Kathmandu, Nepal


Join us as we hold the International Water Association (IWA)’s inaugural conference in Kathmandu, Nepal on “Sustainable Wastewater Treatment and Resource Recovery”. The conference is supported by two IWA specialist groups: Nutrient Removal and Recovery, and Resource Oriented Sanitation and is co-organized by Kathmandu University, Nepal Development Research Institute, Ministry of Urban Development (Gov. of Nepal), Harbin Institute of Technology China, Indian Institute of Technology India.

To meet environmental challenges of the future in a sustainable way, wastewater must be acknowledged as a renewable resource for water, energy, nutrients and other materials. As the water sector looks to face the new challenges with innovative solutions that protect the environment, public health, and global sustainability, minimizing use of resources and maximizing the recovery of resources from wastewater are destined to become the focal points.

The theme of our conference, sustainable wastewater and resource recovery, provides for a critical and timely forum for bringing together scholars, leaders, and practitioners to discuss research and practice impacting wastewater sustainability.

EMMA west

Offer for five 10 months scholarships for doctoral studies

Emma-3 (2012) will select 5 candidates for a 10 month scholarship for doctoral studies at one of its EU partner universities. This will be an  “exchange” mobility, as the doctoral degree will have to be given by the home (Asian) university to which the candidate is already enrolled or will be enrolled before beginning of the mobility. This later university can be Emma partner (TG1 candidate) or any university of the Asian country of an Emma partner (TG2 candidates).

  1. You are enrolled in PhD/Doctoral studies at some university (partner or not), possibly close to defend you thesis, and your supervisor supports your wish to spend 10 months in some Emma partner laboratory where you or your supervisor can set up a research program in relation with the topic of your thesis. This will have to be explained in the recommendation letter of your supervisor.
  2. You are not already enrolled but contacted a possible supervisor at a (home) university where you can and will enroll before you come to EU. This future supervisor writes a letter that you will upload among your recommendation letters. This letter clearly explains what your potential (home) supervisor expects, ideally mentioning contacts with some potential host supervisor in some  partner laboratory.

In any case, when arriving at EU host you will have to be enrolled as a doctoral student at some Asian university that will have signed your Learning Agreement stating that your Emma-mobility will be recognized as part of your doctoral studies.

Applications are open from 23 January  2014 until 9 March 2014, 12:00 am UTC at


Mobility will have to be ended by 14 July 2015 and will thus have to begin by September 2013 to get the full support, and in any case to begin by the end of December 2014.
