Graduate Institute of Environmental Engineering, National Taiwan University and National Taiwan University Research Center for Future Earth co-organized the 28th Joint KAIST-KYOTO-NTU-NUS Symposium on Environmental Engineering. The universities attending the symposium included: Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Kyoto University (KU), National Taiwan University (NTU), and National University of Singapore (NUS).
KKNN is an academic exchange activity initiated by universities in Asia. The purpose is to share academic achievements and examples of application in civil engineering. Until around 30 years ago, it had been organised by KAIST, KU, and NTU. In 1997, NUS became one of the members. Over time, the symposium had developed to cover as many fields in environmental engineering. Eventually, the name of the symposium was officially changed into “KAIST-KYOTO-NTU-NUS Symposium on Environmental Engineering” in the annual conference in 2000. It has been held by the four schools in turn since then.
The symposium this year was organized by NTU. 34 presentations were planned. The goal was to bring together experts, researchers and students from the four universities to discuss latest research results and trends at this stage. The highlights of the symposium included advanced processes for water treatment, biochemical technology, air pollution, development of sponge city and sustainable approach of water resources.
The symposium has brought inspiration in the field of environmental engineering. It has formed a bond between teachers and students who have attended the meeting and deepened the partnership between the four schools. The participants’ enthusiasm and contribution which spurred such fruitful results are highly appreciated.
