International Seminars

International seminars of the Water Observatory

International seminars are debates with Spanish and foreign experts from different professional and academic fields. They are held at the headquarters of the Botin Foundation in a climate of freedom of thought and scientific rigor, not being conditioned by what is ‘politically correct’. The most important aspects covered in each seminar are usually collected in freely accessible publications.
