Workshop on valorization of water research and innovation outside Europe

Did you ever apply innovative water technologies or new knowledge for specific solutions in emerging economies? Have you ever started a collaboration partnership or carried out multistakeholder demonstration projects to showcase European solutions outside Europe. It can be challenging to start these kind of activities.

The Water JPI in cooperation with the WssTP  wish to announce a workshop on valorization of water research and innovation outside Europe. During this workshop experience with valorization from past and current programmes will be shared, and barriers, best practices and possible tools and solutions will be discussed.

Why should you attend?

Participants will get a better understanding on this topic in order to be more successful in establishing research and innovation partnerships outside Europe in the field of water. 

The workshop will be held back to back with the annual WssTP Water Market Europe meeting in the same premises, which take place 20 – 21 March, 2019. see :  https://watermarketeurope.eu/.

One of the objectives of the workshop is to present examples of projects, platforms, networks, and other initiatives which, through RDI partnerships often in cooperation with other stakeholders, can serve as inspiration for others who would like to enter into such initiatives with a dual purpose to promote business development and valorization of the European water sector and to support initiatives in the beneficiary countries.
