WDRC-CIAP 2019 in pictures
The Water Desalination and Reuse Center (WDRC) hosted the 10th annual meeting of the Center Industry Affiliates Program (CIAP) on November 25th & 26th, of which over 30 representatives from in-Kingdom and international collaborators of the Center came to participate.
The meeting provides a platform to discuss and review the latest research and best practices in water desalination and wastewater treatment. It is also a forum to highlight industry gaps and the need for further research and development. Our CIAP partners are always welcome to share and exchange ideas and suggestions with our Center regularly.
We are happy to share some of the photos of this year's event!
