Cutting-edge research

The NaToxAq project was the first to address natural toxins in the water environment in its entirety. With an exceptional degree of cooperation, we addressed all stages of natural toxin production, occurrence, transport, fate, removal, and toxicity. Together with most innovative partners from industry we are covering both, basic research and applied sciences. We are inviting you to contribute and share your knowledge in the field of water-borne natural toxins and their impacts and are looking forward to the discussion in this expert forum.

Fully plenary talks, poster sessions, and networking opportunities

All talks will be plenary, so you don’t need to decide which talk is more relevant for you and don’t miss anything in the talks. However, there will be space for poster presentations, networking, and discussions in an expert forum.

Keynote lectures by experts in the field of

  • Cyanobacterial contamination

Dr. Ingrid Chorus

  • Aqueous chemistry of natural compounds

Prof. Alan T. Stone

  • Science and water regulation

Prof. John Fawell

Student-friendly registration fees and financial support

The conference is co-financed by the NaToxAq project and the European Unions’ Horizon 2020 programme. It is especially designed to facilitate networking among young researchers and promote connections between academia and industry. We also offer the possibility to apply for financial support. See more under registration.

Complementary skills training course for young researchers

We offer a complementary skills course on project and time management prior to the conference (June 9th) for young researchers. There are only few spots! Be quick – capacity is limited! See more under Complementary Skills Course.

Conference dinner

The conference dinner will be hosted in the historic Augustinian Abbey. It offers spaces to enjoy a tepid summer evening outside, while also allowing for indoor festivities if the weather is less friendly. See more under Gala Dinner.
