AXA Chair on Water Quality and Global Change
Long-term climate change, extreme events, and seasonal variations in weather have profound impacts on water quality of rivers, lakes, and reservoir, which in turns threatens the environment, ecosystem services, economies (drinking water production, fisheries..) and global health.

The AXA chair that will be led by Prof Ann van Griensven at the department of hydrology and hydraulic engineering of the VUB will aim at delivering the first high-resolution global freshwater quality model that will provide high resolution datasets, maps of present and future hotspots of water quality problems at global scale.
The chair is expected to start in January 2024.
