Hellenic Water Association | HWA

 

The Hellenic Water Association (HWA) is a non-profit association. It is the Greek Governing member of IWA (International Water Association). The Hellenic Water Association was founded in June 2012. Its principles are its non-political character and non-profit and voluntary operation. Furthermore, HWA aims to act as a think tank, support top-class research and provide high-quality service to society. The main purpose of HWA is to play a primary role to water and wastewater management from a scientific point of view.

 

The ideal core of the HWA lies in the application of the best available practices and contemporary methods for water and wastewater management by a skilled integration of several scientific, technical and management disciplines.
