Dear Water Mining colleagues and Advisory Board members


Welcome to our Kick-off event, which we host at our partner Floating Farm in Rotterdam. Unfortunately we had to switch to an online meeting but we have tried to do our best to make it a memorable event! We aim to get a lively interaction and not only bring you up to date with all the plans and first steps made, but also to discuss the required interaction and collaboration to make Water Mining a success. We have presentations by all Work Package leaders and two break out sessions, where we can discuss all the intended alignment between the work packages. This is complemented with key note presentations by Mark van Loosdrecht, our Scientific Manager and Paul O Gallaghan, a member of our Advisory Board. Our project officer Violeta Kuzmikaite will discuss the European Commission’s aims and expectations for our project and our sister projects. And off course we will also discuss administrative matters. And in between we will streamline the partner video’s presenting all the Water Mining staff. We count on you to make this event a truly engaging meeting and encourage you to use the chat function, voting options and other means that will be presented!


We thank all our colleagues who have contributed to organise this meeting and hope you will enjoy the meeting!

Patricia Osseweijer, Dimitris Xevgenos and Mark van Loosdrecht
