The issue 175/1 of Acque Sotterranee – Italian Journal of Groundwater presents contributions from the Flowpath 2023 Conference which was held in Malta between the 14th and 16th of June. The scope of Flowpath focused on ensuring that hydrogeology can play an important role in supporting the development of groundwater management and protection policies; on strengthening the knowledge and research initiatives on emerging challenges to the groundwater environment and to highlight research initiatives undertaken in the Maltese islands, and improve technical cooperation between Maltese and Italian hydrogeologists. Flowpath brought together in Malta almost 200 hydrogeologists from Italy, Malta and six other countries who together contributed to 8 keynote speeches, 42 oral presentations and 45 posters. In fact this edition includes three papers from the Flowpath conference, two of which highlight joint work undertaken by researchers from Italy and Malta in the characterization of groundwater bodies.
