On October 30-31, 2017, Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) successfully organized the 10th AUN/SEED-Net Regional Conference on Environmental Engineering at HUST campus in Hanoi, Vietnam in conjunction with HUST & Kyoto University International Symposium on the Education & Research of the Global Environmental Studies in Asia.

The conference attracted more than 250 participants including the participants from the network, including, from leading universities in ASEAN and from supporting universities in Japan. The Secretariat team was also in attendance. The meeting was kicked off by two plenary lecture sessions. The first session was about the e-waste recycling in which the speaker raised the importance of collecting e-waste system management as top priority and the second session was about water reuse as a core for sustainability development.

A lot of marvelous presentations, insight into the field of Environmental Engineering were presented while also served as a platform for knowledge exchange and networking among regional community, Japan, and beyond.

During the Regional Conference, not only academic research and network were presented and strengthened, but the future and sustainability of the AUN/SEED-Net project was also discussed with Field Management Members of Environmental Engineering.

Regional Conference of AUN/SEED-Net is an annual academic event for researchers and students to share research findings with other professionals in ASEAN as well as Japan. Not only does it open the door to those who are seeking opportunities to disseminate their research and fine-tune by feedback from other participants, but Regional Conference also helps them find new horizon of their research theme and widen their professional network in Environmental Engineering.
