AQUAlity Lab

AQUAlity Lab was presented in September 2018, during the European Researchers’ Night, by Masho Hilawie Belay, Nuno Paulo Ferreira Gonçalves, Dimitra Papagiannaki, Ilaria Berruti, Fabrício Eduardo Bortot Coelho. It was replicated: a) in February 2019, by Ilaria Berruti, Masho Hilawie Belay, Nuno Gonḉalves, Dimitra Papagiannaki, Fabricio Bortot Coelho and Katarzyna Janowska, in a presentation directly targeted to secondary school students, b) in October 2019, by AQUAlity Fellow Esra Eray and by Haris Kadrispahic, Victor Candelario and Nanette Zahrtmann (LIQTECH R&D Team), in a presentation directly targeted to master students (AQUAlity Fellows Fabricio Bortot Coelho and Dennis Deemter also helped to carry out the experiments); c) in February 2020, by Nuno Paulo Ferreira Gonçalves, Zsuzsanna Varga and Dimitra Papagiannaki, in a presentation directly targeted to junior high school students.

Outreach activities within AQUAlity Lab directed at high school students (in the form of PPT presentations and experiments):
