a common vision for water research and innovation

WATER MARKET EUROPE

WssTP is excited to announce the launch of its new event ‘Water Market Europe‘ which is scheduled to take place on the 28th of March at the Diamant Center in Brussels.

Water Market Europe is a new event cycle that WssTP is setting up to create a unique innovation and business environment, where state of the art water knowledge and research results can meet with market actors within and outside the water sector to create value and new business opportunities. During the event, B2B meetings will be organised similarly to the WssTP Brokerage Event, enabling participants to have a targeted networking experience.

Water Market Europe will bring together a top-class research and innovation to address some of the most pressing global challenges for growth and sustainability, promoting the true value of water, and Europe’s worldwide leadership.
