Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl


Aarhus University Centre for Water Technology is a strong interdisciplinary setup across several Departments from the Faculties of Natural Sciences and Technical Sciences at Aarhus University.

The center is headed by Professor Niels Peter Revsbech along with a Steering Committee consisting of leading scientists representing key research areas of the centre.

The Board is chaired by the Dean of Natural Sciences, Aarhus University Kristian Pedersen.

A strong international Advisory Board unites representatives from leading research institutions together with world unique industry experts on water technologies. We are proud to have Mikkel Holmen Andersen from Unisense A/S as chairman of the WATEC Advisory board.
