Scientific and technical conference in Krakow – objectives

Scheduled for the penultimate week of September, the Scientific and Technical Conference entitled Water – a key factor in the development of civilization is organized by Jagiellonian University, the Association of Polish Hydrologists and the Hydrological Commission of the Polish Geographical Society, in cooperation with the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management – PIB, as well as the Water Management Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The main purpose of the event, covered under the honorary patronage of the Rector of the Jagiellonian University in Cracow and the Rector of the Stanisław Moniuszko University of Agriculture. The goal of the Hugo Kołłątaj University of Science and Technology in Krakow is to draw attention to the most important challenges currently facing hydrology.

They concern both the quantity and quality of available water resources, studied not only in a basic context, but also in an applied one. These include, first and foremost, rational water management, which has a significant impact on the functioning of the economy, society and ecosystems. The event will also address the issue of the rate of water circulation, both in the natural environment and in conditions transformed by human activity, which is increasingly affecting the state of the resource. In addition, the Science and Technology Conference will present the results of research related to the impact of climate change on water resources and their quantity in recent years. There will also be plenty of discussions, including on strategies related to water conservation and opportunities to increase water resources.

The Scientific and Technical Conference ” Water – a key factor in the development of civilization ” will therefore be an excellent opportunity for many experts representing different cognitive perspectives and research approaches at different temporal and spatial scales to meet and exchange experiences. Participants will cover a broad spectrum of hydrology issues, and will also benefit from opportunities for networking and fruitful collaborations.

The themes of the conference, titled “The importance of the conference. Water – a key factor in the development of civilization
