Le Cluster H2O vous invite à la mission EUROPEAN WATER TECH WEEK 2022 qui aura lieu à Leeuwarden, aux Pays-Bas les 19, 20, 21 et 22 septembre 2022.

Les objectifs de la mission sont :

  • assurer une visibilité à l'international à tous ses membres qui le souhaitent via stand flyers & vidéos
  • donner accès à de nombreuses innovations qui émergent du secteur de l'Eau
  • participer à de l'after working BtoB

Venez nous rejoindre 1 jour, 2 jours, voire 3 jours à la deuxième Semaine européenne des technologies de l'eau (EWTW 2022) pour rencontrer les dirigeants d'entreprises, d'universités et de gouvernement et s'inspirer mutuellement. L'édition précédente de EWTW a attiré plus de 1000 participants de 38 pays.

Science, valorisation, mise à l'échelle, développement commercial, exportation, entrepreneuriat, politique et éducation : tous les aspects de l'innovation technologique dans le domaine de l'Eau seront intégrés dans le programme du EUROPEAN WATER TECH WEEK 2022.

Le programme détaillé

Pendant le Congrès European Water Technology Week 2022 a également lieu le salon Water Tech Europe, qui n'est pas le même événement. Les deux sont bien sûr complémentaires, les visiteurs de l'EWTW ont accès gratuitement au salon Water Tech Europe.

Thursday September 22

Your best way to discover how diverse Dutch water tech is, is to experience it yourself. Our special tours aim at just that. You get to experience first-hand what and how water technology plays a part in very diverse surroundings.


All tours starts at the WaterCampus. WaterCampus Leeuwarden is the physical core of the Dutch water technology sector and has the ambition to play a sector uniting role for the rest of Europe as well. WaterCampus stimulates cooperation between (inter)national businesses, knowledge institutes and governments within the water technology sector, in order to create synergy for world class innovation, education and entrepreneurship. This strengthens the global position of the European water technology sector. Additionally, WaterCampus offers a unique research infrastructure, and is a meeting point for scientists and companies from all over Europe.

You will visit the various facilities, such as the Water Application Centre and Wetsus research facilities.

At a glance:

  • Tour 1 - Resource Recovery : Visit a WWTP (Waste Water Treatment Plant) and also a local soccer club which uses water twice via a Hydraloop. Next you will visit the showcase ‘Water Schoon

  • Tour 2 - Water & Energy : Visit to Ir. D.F. Woudagemaal, the largest still operational steam pumping station in the world dates from 1920 and has been on UNESCO’s World Heritage List since 1998. This monumental steam giant is still used by Wetterskip Fryslân to ensure dry feet in Friesland when the water levels are too high.

  • Tour 3 - Water & Circular Economy : In Flevoland, governments, knowledge institutes and businesses have joined forces to initiate a water transition. In WaterLab Circular Water suppliers are challenged to test innovations together with end users in 7 practical situations. Via the principle of launching customership (first customer) they get to work on making the water supply circular. On September 22 we will take you to one of these projects.

* We are working on an exact time schedule for the tours. All tours will start around 8.00 am and will end around 5.00 pm.
