The Academy of Finland organised the 2nd Water JPI Conference in Helsinki on 6–7 June 2018. The aim of the international conference was to attract experts in emerging pollutants to meet and discuss common challenges and share their recent discoveries and knowledge. The conference was targeted at both researchers and end-users, especially policy-makers.
By bringing together stakeholders from research and industry as well as policy-makers and relevant organisations, the conference contributed to filling knowledge gaps regarding the environmental behaviour of water pollutants and their effects on human health. Specific topics covered included development of analysis and detection systems, water treatment opportunities, impacts of wastewater reuse on human health, new water management practices and risk predictions.
