In the course of climate change, extreme weather and extreme water events such as storm surges, floods and droughts are steadily increasing and are also affecting Germany to an ever greater extent. The "Water in Transition" symposium, chaired by Prof. Dr. Ulrike Gayh, SRH University of Applied Sciences Heidelberg, will address the (negative) effects of such extreme weather events on water quality in streams, rivers and lakes and discuss innovative solutions using artificial intelligence.

The focus is not only on current research and developments, but also on the transfer of knowledge and expertise to young scientists and prospective specialists, particularly in the field of water technology/data science. The symposium programme consists of interactive event formats and, in addition to lectures, also uses workshops and a hackathon to promote creative, interdisciplinary collaboration. The involvement of international participants emphasises the global relevance of the topic and enables diverse perspectives and discussions. 

The aim of the symposium is an interdisciplinary exchange between research, practice and civil society on the management of water extremes, as well as on the potential for improvement in the higher education of specialists and young researchers. The symposium offers a platform for impulses and networking opportunities to jointly develop sustainable solutions for water-related conflicts and to make higher education fit for the future.

"The symposium "Water in Transition" is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and is part of the Volkswagen Foundation theme week "Water between the Extremes"."
