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.
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.
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.
