Welcome to NORDIWA 2023
Nordic Wastewater Conference

5 - 7 September | Göteborg | Sweden

We look forward to welcoming all of you to the Nordic Wastewater Conference 2023.
In early September 2023, experts and practitioners, managers and operators, city planners, researchers, engineers, advisors and others with an interest in wastewater management, urban drainage and climate adaptation in the Nordic region will meet in Göteborg.

The Nordic Wastewater Conference is being arranged for the eighteenth time. We look forward to three interesting and developing days, when we will meet, exchange ideas and learn from each other’s experiences and practices. We are proud to present the beautiful city of Göteborg and the conference venue Elite Park Avenue Hotel, located at the fashionable street Avenyn. A well-suited arena for presentations, discussions, workshops and the Nordiwa exhibition. Additionally, there will possibilities to further explore the city through arranged technical tours.
