4th Congress of the African Membrane Society              
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia - November 5-8, 2024                  

Sustainable Innovation in Membrane
and Filtration Science for Circular Economy

The vibrant city of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is the home of the Headquarters for the African Union and Economic Commission for Africa (ECA)

 

This gathering will be a great opportunity to learn and examine how scientific research and technology can influence the emergence of sustainable development practices in Africa and across the globe. Many world-class experts from the public and private sectors will be presenting their latest research findings and teaching materials on a wide range of topics – see below. Ethiopia is poised to lead the future development of Africa while experiencing an unprecedented industrial transformation and economic growth. Thanks to its vibrant culture, diverse traditions, and a rapidly advancing economy, Ethiopia provides an ideal setting for delegates to celebrate membrane science in Africa at AMSIC-4.

Meeting location: Inter Luxury Hotel https://interluxuryhotel.com/ The organizers will send a notification when hotel reservations can be made.

Motivations and purpose:

• Engage in cutting-edge discussions on membrane technology and filtration processes.
• Collaborate with African scientists and international experts to address global challenges.

• Promote the development of an entrepreneurial membrane filtration ecosystem in Africa
• Explore Ethiopia's rich cultural and religious heritage, stunning natural landscapes, and a thriving youth community.
