Course on “Tools for the sustainable management of wastewater”

The Msc course about “Tools for sustainable management of wastewater” took place in Girona last 5 and 6 of November 2012. More than 25 persons attended the course, which combined more theoretical lessons with practical hands-on sessions. Topics covered within the course included: Complexity and management of environmental systems,  knowledge‐based systems and Environmental Decision Support Systems (EDSS), environmental data analysis and model induction with selected machine learning tools (data mining), Multicriteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) in wastewater systems and water in LCA. Course lecturers included researchers within the Ecotech project as well as other well-recognized researchers in this field.
