On occasion of the city of Leeuwarden being European Capital of Culture 2018, the WaterCampus Leeuwarden organises a series of events on water technology. The event will focus on the question how multidisciplinary cooperation can help to solve societal challenges around water.
Date: 24-27 September 2018
Location: Leeuwarden, the Netherlands
Organiser: WaterCampus Leeuwarden
The global water technology sector is increasingly organized in hubs. The European Water Tech Week Leeuwarden 2018 (EWTW 2018) will connect these hubs in Leeuwarden, the United Nations Innovating City for water technology.
At this special event, the sector will meet and inspire each other in the innovative climate of WaterCampus Leeuwarden.
Innovation, technology and policy leaders from companies, universities and governments get together during several inspiring events taking place from September 24 to 27, 2018.
EWTW 2018 will among others feature the Wetsus Annual Congress 2018, Water Alliance WaterLink2018 and a dedicated trade show. In the program, the Wetsus annual congress and WaterLink Symposium are connected with each other in synergy. The program features sessions on business, science, policy and international cooperation.
The event will focus on the question how multidisciplinary cooperation can help to solve societal challenges around water. Issues like water scarcity, water pollution and water and health will be on the agenda, just like the water sector’s contribution to the circular economy.
