    Five national dissemination events are planned in IWAMA to promote locally the project results and outputs. All events will be organized in the local languages and supported with translated IWAMA outputs.

    Germany, Finland, Lithuania, Estonia, Sweden – check the dates and come to learn about practical products of IWAMA!

Capacity development activities in IWAMA enable structured lifelong learning and expertise exchange of specialists working in wastewater treatment.

One of the IWAMA aims is applying energy efficient technologies in the wastewater treatment sector to reduce nutrient impact in the Baltic Sea Region.

Smart sludge management is an important step to reducing loads of nutrients and hazardous substances to the Baltic Sea.

Involvement for the clean Baltic Sea

The Baltic Sea Challenge network promotes awareness of the state of the Baltic Sea and inspires organizations in the region to join the initiative to make the shared sea resource clean and productive.
