ATB Academy – Overview of our Online-Seminars

In spring 2020, we launched the ATB Academy. Since then, we have already conducted 25 online seminars on numerous topics in the field of environmental protection, in German and English.  This is reason enough to continue offering you exciting topics in an appealing and informative way in online seminars. In addition to environmental protection and water/wastewater in general, there are also specific topics such as wastewater treatment, decentralised/semi-centralised wastewater treatment plants, water reuse and integrated overall concepts. As always, participation is free of charge.

Based on the experience and feedback of previous years, we have decided to no longer offer only individual presentations, but to bundle suitable presentations on important topics in a joint event. This will increase the breadth and depth of information and discussions.

We hope to be able to offer you support and stimulation in your daily work with this offer.

Have a look at the selection below. Perhaps there is a suitable event for you. Just click on the corresponding link and register. You will then receive confirmation and further information on the program.
