Abstract

The start of COST Action 624 brought together most of the researchers actively involved in the research area from 23 countries and since then the action has been including new researchers entering the field. Special emphasis has been on the involvement of young researchers, pre-docs, PhDs and post docs, the idea being, that the most long lasting networjk can be created between the young researchers at the start of their career. The action has been open to involve new specialities in the workshops. They were not been closed clubs with fixed memberships, but an open abd expandingstructure with many cross-links.
The main objective of the action was to optimise the performance and cost effectiveness of wastewater management systems by the increase of knowledge of microbial systems and by implementation of integrated plant-wide control based on a description of the entire wastewater system, thereby providing new concepts for dealing with wastewater in a future sustainable society.
The results from the five working groups are presented in this report. The workshops and conferences have been distributed over 14 countries in Europe. This has allowed many local participants to taje part without needing to have their costs financed by COST.
