IWONE 2017
The next  IWONE conference (8:th International Workshop on Natural Energies) is scheduled at August 4th - 6th, 2017, at Höör (50 km northeast of Malmö), Sweden.

With two years since the last IWONE in 2015, it is time for a new interesting workshop - an opportunity to present and discuss unconventional research in an open and relaxed atmosphere.

IWONE is a workshop covering non-traditional ways to affect water flow, water quality, plants, weather and eco-systems, as well as non-traditional alternative energy sources. Historically the workshop has had a focus on ideas related to the Austrian naturalist Viktor Schauberger. The workshop is organized by Institute of Ecological Technology (IET) - a non-profit foundation and distributed self-organizing research institute, situated in Sweden.

General Information

The idea is that the participants should hold speeches (15-60 minutes, in general 30 minutes) in order to present new ideas or to inform about their actual work or recent research. We also encourage discussions, and the participants will get feedback through discussions and interaction with the audience. If you do not have a presentation, it is possible to participate as a listener (if there is space). The maximum number of participants is 60.

We try to keep a balance between presentations, practical workshops and topic discussions.
