  2. Issues discussed : • Goals and objectives • A coordinator for the committee had been selected. • The need of developing a road map for the committee. • The need of having a detailed list of R&D research centers and their activities worldwide. • Idea of inviting number of well known speakers to the next IDA Conference to talk about new trends in research directions. • The need of having a specialized booklet directed to young researchers to introduce them to water desalination technologies. • The committee agreed on visiting some research centre worldwide. 1st Meeting 1st Meeting 2nd Meeting 3rd Meeting 4th Meeting 6th of March 2010 Riyadh, Saudi Arabia 4 IDA - Research & Development Committee – 1st Annual Report

  3. Issues discussed and closed: • Before the end of year 2010, some of the research centers in Europe will be visited by the committee. • Before the end of year 2010, the following research centerswill be visited by the committee: • Development Center of Water Treatment Technology, State Oceanic Administration, Hangzhou, China. • Institute of Seawater Desalination and Multipurpose Utilization, State Oceanic Administration, Tianjin, China. • The importance of establish a strategic relationship with all research centers which will be visited by the committee. • A roadmap for high efficiency desalination had been proposed to the committee by Mr. Harry Seah and been reviewed. • A clear and general worldwide-desalination roadmap should be developed. • A list of well known speakers whom can talk about new trends in research-directions during the next IDA Conference will be developed. • The possibility of having a section on IDA Journal specialized in R&D will be discussed with the IDA Journal Editor Mr. John Hughes . 2nd Meeting 1st Meeting 2nd Meeting 3rd Meeting 4th Meeting 11th of April 2010 Riyadh, Saudi Arabia 5 IDA - Research & Development Committee – 1st Annual Report
