2016 MIT water summit: Sign up for the poster presentation session by Nov 7


November 4, 2016

The MIT Water Club and its sponsors are thrilled to announce the fifth edition of the MIT Water Summit, a gathering of students and faculty with leaders from industry, finance, and government to explore current problems and potential solutions surrounding water resources.  The theme of the summit  is Water Utilities of the Future. Turn on your faucet: clean water flows out, and wastewater disappears down the drain. Essential, yet not guaranteed. How do we create efficient and sustainable water cycles for our future, adapting to a changing climate and urban population growth? What role will new technologies and designs play? What’s the current economic landscape, how do we finance the future water utility, and what policy issues must be resolved? How do we increase the flow of ideas between academia and industry through markets, to ultimately reach water-taps. Early bird tickets are on sale till November 2nd and can be purchased here! Key highlights include panel discussions, a poster presentation session (sign up here), and technology showcase (contact us). More details about the program and the speakers can be found on our website. Please write to us at  watersummit@mit.edu if you have questions! Remember to sign up for the Poster Presentation Session by Nov. 7th! The summit will take place in November 17-18 at Wong Auditorium, MIT.
