International Forward Osmosis Association Conference
The IFOA is pleased to announce its first World Summit and Gala Dinner in conjunction with the Association’s Annual General Assembly meeting in historic Lisbon, Portugal on 18th – 19th September 2014. Join world-leading experts in Forward Osmosis (FO) technology at the Dom Pedro Palace hotel in Lisbon to learn more about the latest commercial developments, strategies and techniques in FO. Participate in a variety of interactive technical sessions, and join the General Assembly meeting and help develop the Association’s agenda for 2015 and beyond. Outstanding technical sessions will include noted industry experts presenting practical and useful insight into FO applications and performance advantages.
- Event Type:
- Sep. 18-19, 2014
- Lisbon , Portugal
The Summit will also provide a unique opportunity to network with others involved in Forward Osmosis and discuss the latest technologies and solutions. One of the key networking opportunities is the IFOA gala dinner and river cruise on Thursday 18th September which is included in the conference registration fee and will be held on board the M/V Opera. Coaches will be laid on from the hotel to the port and the river cruise will then depart for dinner and journey along the Tagus River to the Torre Belém, Terreiro do Paço and Parque das nações.
