REMTAVARES Consortium organizes a course “School of technologies for treatment of emerging pollutants in hospital and urban wastewater” that will be held on January 23-26, 2017 in Rey Juan Carlos University. The presence of emerging pollutants in hospital and urban wastewater is a trouble due to the conventional sewage treatment stations cannot remove them. The REMTAVARES Consortium (Madrid advanced wastewater treatment network) focuses his research on the development of new technologies for removing pollutants such as drugs, metals and organic compounds. Dr. Sanda Iepure, Dr. Andreu Rico, Dr. Antonio Berná y Dr. Junkal Landaburu, researchers form IMDEA Water, participate as speakers.

September 30, 2016 Participation to European Research Night event with the workshop “The water below your feet: aquifers and caves” we recreate an aquifer and the assistants learned how the human activities affect to groundwater quality, their associated ecosystems and the groundwater fauna. The entire workshop was held in a recreated cave to enable the children to experiment how it feels underground. The assistants also learned the importance of groundwater as a source of drinking water (http://www.madrimasd.org/lanochedelosinvestigadores2016/).
