COST was delighted to support Water Innovation Europe and reaffirm its commitment to research in the water sector. Water Innovation Europe was an event led jointly by WssTP and ACQUEAU, the EUREKA Cluster for water. It aimed to push forward the central initiative of the European water sector – innovative collaboration for sustainable & competitive results – through active discussion and debate.

Water Innovation Europe addressed the major topics related to efficiency and innovation with regard to water, addressing quantity and quality issues and taking the entire water cycle into consideration.

It was an opportunity for conversation, debate, discussion and a translation of these into tangible actions, with the combined efforts of all of those who were involved and those who attended
