Objective

To address the subject of Emerging Technologies to Address Water Treatment Problems in Developing Countries, it is proposed to organise the Course Possibilities for Safe Water Provision Using New Technologies and the Symposium The Challenge of Safe Drinkin g Water Provision: Technologies for the Latin American Region, in coincidence with the Final Meeting of the ongoing INCO Project: Cost Effective Solar Photocatalytic Technology to Water Decontamination and Disinfection in Rural Areas of Developing Countrie s (SOLWATER), Contract: ICA4-CT-2002-10001. Both events are also addressed to strongly reinforce the dissemination of results of the SOLWATER project. The proposed date is October 14-19, 2005, were the SOLWATER meeting will take place. The Symposium, addre ssed to scientists and engineers working in the subject, will be a 3-days event to discuss the state of the art of the photocatalytic technology for water purification and to disseminate the capabilities of available technologies among potential users and Small or Medium Sized Enterprises and top Officers of the nearby countries. The full participation of partners of the SOLWATER Project is foreseen. The Symposium will also promote the transfer and exploitation of the results of the SOLWATER Project and wou ld serve to explore Further possible future research activities, including pilot actions on the developed solar photocatalytic technology. The Course is a two-days event that includes technical lectures on the characteristics of available technologies, dir ected to young scientists and engineers. The estimated audience includes 50 attendees from nearly all Latin American countries. Lectures will be mainly given by the partners of the SOLWATER Project. Registration shall be open to further participants, on th e basis of adequate qualifications and payment of the costs of the course. The Course will contribute to the training of scientists and engineers in the technology
