Arnaud Watlet, one of our PhD students, has recently received the renowned Ernest du Bois Doctorate Award from the King Baudouin Foundation. The Ernest du Bois PhD prize aims to encourage young engineers conducting research in the field of water to focus on the issues of water availability for human populations around the world, protection of resources, pollution problems, and treatment techniques. This therefore perfectly corresponds to the KARAG project goals. The 20.000€ PhD Prize will considerably help A. Watlet to finalize its PhD thesis. Good luck to him!
