Sustainable Water in the 21st Century

1 October 2019 09:00-19:00, London, United Kingdom


Introduction
This 1-day conference will take an holistic view of the unique position of the chemical sciences in facilitating the supply and treatment of water. It will cover policies, strategies and technologies for supplying safe water to where it is needed - seeking to minimise the environmental risks and costs of providing and treating water whilst maximising social benefits.
 
It will also consider methods to optimise water conservation, the use and reuse of water and wastewaters, the importance of extracting value from water, and the likely drivers that will affect the cost/benefit of applying these technologies in the future.
 
The event will focus on exploring pathways and techniques that depend on the chemical sciences to supply and treat water in a sustainable way, achieving the maximum societal benefit with the lowest intergenerational consequences.

Who should attend:
  • Global water policy developers
  • National and regional government water policy and urban planners
  • Academic water policy and water science researchers
  • Local authority and municipal representatives
  • Water company personnel
  • Environmental regulators, planners and policymakers
  • Third sector organisations involved in water and public health
  • Businesses wanting to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals - particularly SGD6
  • Agricultural sector water use planners
  • Companies providing scientific services to the water sector
 

Grants for carers

Grants for carers have been introduced following the Royal Society of Chemistry Breaking the barriers report where 78% of chemists working in UK academia felt that managing parenting and/or caring responsibilities has an impact on women’s retention and progression. This fund is not limited to women scientists and welcomes applications from anyone with caring responsibilities, for more information please refer to the ‘bursaries’ section on this page.

Grants for Carers

You can apply for up to a maximum of £1000/year to assist with additional financial costs that you incur for care usually provided by you whilst you attend a chemistry related meeting, conference or workshop or a professional development event.
 
Caring responsibilities are wide and varied, and so each application will be individually assessed, examples of applications that we will consider include:
• paying for extra home help or nursing care for a dependent whilst you will not be present
• additional medical/respite care for a dependent whilst you will not be present
• travel expenses for a relative to travel with you to care for dependents whilst you attend a meeting or event
• paying for extended hours with a care worker/childminder/play scheme to cover time when you will arrive home later than normal.
 
You are eligible to apply if:
you are a chemist
you will incur additional caring expenses whilst attending a chemistry-related meeting, conference, event or workshop or a professional development event
you will use these funds to cover the cost of care that you usually provide
you are based in the UK or Ireland or if not, you will normally have held three years RSC membership (past or current).These grants for carers have been introduced following the Royal Society of Chemistry Breaking the barriers report where 78% of chemists working in UK academia felt that managing parenting and/or caring responsibilities has an impact on women’s retention and progression. This fund is not limited to women scientists and welcomes applications from anyone with caring responsibilities
 
These grants have been supported by The Royal Society of Chemistry’s Chemists’ Community Fund.
