Testing the waters: third international conference on wastewater analysis

Leading European and international experts met in Lisbon from 26–27 October 2017 to review the state of the art of a rapidly developing scientific discipline known as wastewater-based epidemiology.

Conference themes were:

  • Bridging the fields of wastewater-based epidemiology and conventional drug epidemiology: Current research aims to bring together wastewater analysis and drug epidemiology by sharing knowledge from different disciplines;
  • New applications and future perspectives: Novel uses of the approach are explored, such as the early detection of new psychoactive substances on the drug market.
