14th Annual Meeting of AOGS Singapore 6-11th of August 2017
UGT has taken part successfully in the 14th Annual Meeting in Singapore which finishes on Friday the 11th of August.
Recognizing the need of cooperation when facing the global challenges scientists from all over Asia came and presented their findings and research topics.
UGT as a main supplier for monitoring equipment in the field of soil, hydrology and ecology was with its booth D02 a meeting point for scientists from more than 12 different Asian countries
Dr. Sascha Reth held a scientific conference in the innovative theatre on Tuesday, 8th of August. The UGT lysimeter technology and most different scientific applications were in the focus of his presentation.
Interesting questions highlighted that the lysimeter is a highly valuable research equipment by far not only for people in soil science but also in adjacent fields like meteorology, geography, hydrology or ecology. The questions after the session were partly already first starting points for new lysimeter projects. See further information at www.lysimeter.info
The AOGS was also a meeting point for us and our Australian partner ICT. Peter Cull and UGT discussed the future joint projects and explored more options for our future work.
The UGT booth at AOGS was visited on the one hand by experienced renowned scientists and on the other hand as well by young scientists from Singapore, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, South Korea, Phillipines , Vietnam and others. One of the most interesting points of discussion for visitors at the booth was the new EcoUnit.
In the margin of AOGS we also initiated the cooperation with our new partner Wykeham Farrance Services PTE LTD in Singapore. The owner and Managing Director Daniel Tan Hua Poh and the engineers Mr. Bjorn Chen and Ms. Tham Lai Shan UGT visited the office of Wykeham Farrances and gave a first introduction in our product range
We look forward to the projects in Singapore. At the exhibition our partners from Wykeham made use of the opportunity to get more familiar with the UGT product range.
The workshop in Freising Germany which takes place from the 17th to the 19th of October will be the first opportunity to meet up with our partners and other scientists and get familiar with UGT technique. We look forward to host our partners in Müncheberg and Freising.
AOGS was a successful exhibition and very well and effectively organized. We thank the organizing committee and are now striving to implement the new projects and further develop them. We say thanks and good bye to Singapore and the AOGS community.
