European Water Tech Week 2018:
Connecting Global Water Tech Hubs

September 24 – 27, 2018 Leeuwarden

Monday September 24: City Theatre De Harmonie
Tuesday September 25 – Thursday September 27: WestCord WTC Hotel Leeuwarden

 

The global water technology sector is increasingly organized in hubs. The European Water Tech Week 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, science and policy leaders from companies, universities and governments get together from September 24 to 27, 2018. 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.

Program

September 22-27, 2018







10.00 AM
10.00 AM - 03.00 PM WaterCampus Leeuwarden

The European Water Tech Week (EWTW) kicks off with an Experience Day at WaterCampus in Leeuwarden. During this opening day of the EWTW, WaterCampus will bring you a very special program! Facts and fiction are mixed together this day.

You will never look at water the same again!

Is it really true that the computers at Wetsus run on energy extracted from urine? And is that why the employees drink so much water? Does sewer water from the city of Leeuwarden flow through the Water Application Centre and are people investigating that there? One moment you are in the middle of a sketch or performance of a celebrated actor, the other moment you walk past bubbling and steaming test setups in the laboratories of Wetsus and the Water Application Centre. Or you meet the people behind the start-up companies in the WaterCampus Business Centre ‘Johannes de Doper’. One thing is certain, after this day you will never look at water the same again! Registration is not required.

 

09.30 AM
09.30 AM - 06.00 PM City Theatre De Harmonie

On Monday September 24, the first European Water Technology Week will kick off. This first EWTW day offers a program aimed at business, policy, science and international collaboration.

Excellence in Multidisciplinarity

After the plenary opening session, esteemed keynote speakers will address the theme of the Wetsus Congress: ‘Excellence in Multidisciplinarity’. Multisdisciplinary research is increasingly recognized as a precondition to create breakthrough innovations, but how to effectively organize this? Views from science, business and politics are shared.

Connecting Global Water Tech Hubs

In the afternoon, a plenary session called ‘Connecting Global Water Tech Hubs’ is scheduled. Water technology hubs from around the world will briefly pitch their activities. In a lively session they will discuss with each other about challenges and opportunities in international cooperation in the field of water technology.
Several Innovation, technology and policy leaders from Global Water clusters, companies, universities and governments will highlight their vison on being part of a Water Hub, like Singapore, Israel, South Korea, US and others. They will focus on the question how multidisciplinary cooperation can help to solve societal challenges around water.

– On-stage discussion: Multiple hubs in one place: How water hubs provide business opportunities

Chair: Andrew Walker, International marketing strategist & public speaker
Special guest: Henk Ovink, Special Envoy for International Water Affairs at Kingdom of the Netherlands
The global water technology sector is increasingly organized in hubs. The European Water Tech Week Leeuwarden 2018 connects these Global Hubs in Leeuwarden this week. Several leaders from Global Water clusters will highlight their vision on being part of a Water Hub.
Today we will have a moderated on-stage discussion between the waterhubs and the audience. This discussion will focus on how water hubs provide business opportunities for their partners and how partners from other water hubs can benefit.

The Hubs:

– The Netherlands: Hein Molenkamp, WaterCampus, Leeuwarden

 

What is special about the Netherlands in water tech? Special water envoy of the Netherlands Henk Ovink gives his vision on the Dutch Water knowledge and skills and more specific in water technology related issues. Many Dutch water tech companies being mainly small or medium enterprises (sme) are considered being very innovative and often strong niche players, with a great international market potention. What are the chances for Dutch companies in world-wide market and what are the opportunities in cooperation with other countries. It is a matter of strong cooperation and building alliances between many countries to solve the challenges with clean water and sanitation in the world. Water Alliance connects global water tech hubs to support creating strong business cooperation.

The yearly WIS Award organised bij Water Alliance show some great examples of new innovations. After the pitches of the WIS innovations the floor is to some important leaders of Global Water Hubs, where they will explain their role. Together with Henk Ovink they will discuss the possibilities of working together and strengthen the ties between countries in order to find solutions.
Several water leaders from Global Water Hubs are expected to give their vision, like from Israel, South Korea, USA, Singapore and more.
