The WATEF Network are very pleased to announce their first international conference to be held in the beautiful city of Aveiro, known as the Venice of Portugal. The Conference will be held within the University of Aveiro where there will be plenty of opportunity for delegates to network during the conference sessions and also the conference events all of which will benefit from a true international feel.
The city of Aveiro has good transport links and is well known for its many Art Deco/Art Novo buildings and of course the colourful Moliceiros which provide access along the Ria for both tourist and fisherman alike.
