6. June 2018 | Aqua Republica at IFAT 2018 in Munich

On 16 and 17 May 2018, the University Challenge under the auspices of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and implemented by the German Association of Water, Wastewater and Waste (DWA) took place at IFAT in Munich. The program gives qualified youngsters the chance to connect with experts of relevant companies and increase their skills in the development of strategies of sustainable water use management. One of the disciplines was supported by DHI and gave young talents the chance to play the Water Scarcity Version of Aqua Republica. Thereby, they achieved a better understanding of the relationship between water usage, social and economic development and environmental sustainability. In total, 14 international teams participated. The winning teams from abroad competed against participants from German Universities. The team of the Technical University of Vienna achieved the best performance and won the University Challenge.
