The Value of Water: The case for innovation and investment in water
Under the theme ‘The Value of Water: The case for innovation and investment in water’, WssTP is hosting its annual stakeholder conference on the 14 and 15 June at the BluePoint Centre in Brussels.
With the new WssTP Water Vision 2030 “The value of water” as its departure point, WssTP has set up a compelling agenda with exclusive sessions on all the key innovation concepts of the WssTP Water vision and a diverse range of insightful and high-level speakers. Jyri Katainen, the EC Vice-President for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness will be among the key note speakers of the second day of WIE2017. The two-day conference will showcase that pro-actively addressing key water challenges can create strong investment and market opportunities within and outside Europe. The programme of the event will also address the priorities and expectations for the next EU Framework Programme, successor to Horizon2020.
In the context of WIE2017, the 2017 edition of WssTP Awards will, also, take place on the 14th of June, featuring four different prize categories: SME prize, Water Technology & Infrastructure, Digital Water Prize and Water Governance Prize.
