The Division Water Quality & Health at KL is Co-organizer of the 44th IAD Conference.
The Division Water Quality & Health is organizing the next 44th conference of the International Association of Danube Research (IAD), under the patronage of the Austrian committee of the IAD.
The 44th IAD conference* will be held from February 6 to 9, 2023 at the Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences in Krems, situated in the beautiful landscape of the Wachau, next to the Danube River.
Here, our research division “Water Quality and Health”, led by Andreas Farnleitner and Alexander Kirschner, has established a strong research focus on water quality and health issues concerning the Danube River. Health is considered in a holistic, transdisciplinary way under the “One Health” concept of the WHO, combining human, animal and environmental health in an ecological context. Thus the conference shall bring together scientists and experts from different disciplines for discussing the present and future environmental challenges of our Danube riverscape.
February 6, day 1 of the conference, is primarily reserved to all health related topics in connection to the pollution of the Danube and its tributaries in the Danube River basin. The other days focus more on the ecology, biodiversity, restoration and river management.

*This conference was originally planned to be organized by our Ukrainian colleagues at the Institute of Hydrobiology of the National Academy of Sciences in Kyiv, but due to the Russian aggression this became unfortunately impossible. We wish our esteemed colleagues all the best for their future.
