next IWONE conference (8:th International
Workshop on Natural Energies) is scheduled at August 4th - 6th, 2017,
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.
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
