APE held its General Assembly and Working Groups meetings on the 22-23 May in Bari, hosted by Acquedotto Pugliese at its prestigious premises.
The assembly gave the opportunity to take stoke of a fruitful year for the Association, and to welcome a significant number of new members.
Thanks to a high participation of APE members, the meetings gave also the chance to define ambitious roadmaps for both the Working Groups and the Association as a whole.
Finally, distinguished speakers contributed to frame APE’s action within a broader international perspective (here below you can download their presentations).
