About The Event

Wetskills Events Wave

Back to the Wetskills roots: China!!

The first Wetskills Water Challenge ever was organized in China during the WorldExpo 2010 in Shanghai. Guess where we aimed to go this year as well… China!! The Wetskills Foundation invites Bachelor, Master, PhD students and recent graduates to apply for the Wetskills Water Challenge programme in Hangzhou and Shanghai. This edition of Wetskills will take the participants to the nice city of Hangzhou with the beautiful XiHu (West Lake). The presentations will be organized in the framework of and close cooperation with the largest water event worldwide: Aquatech China in Shanghai (31 May – 2 June). So Wetskills will stay in booming Shanghai for the last days as well! 

To all who are interested in water challenges and the ancient heritage of Hangzhou and the booming Shanghai: this is your chance! Apply now for this great opportunity to experience China and its water!

We are looking for local and international students and Young Professionals, who are passionate about water and excited to work in mixed teams for transdisciplinary water solutions. Apply for Wetskills China 2018 (period: 20 May 2018 – 1 June 2018).

We are looking for you! Read the Announcement for Participants Wetskills China 2018.

Application Deadline

Deadline for application and selection: 30 March 2018 (First come, first served)


Participation costs for international participants or local participants without accommodation in Hangzhou and Shanghai are 425 euros or equivalent in Chinese yuan. The fee includes accommodation, programme costs, supervision, some social activities, field trips, working locations, presentations by experts and the awarding event at the Aquatech Shanghai exhibition & congress. It does not include transport, some meals, other daily costs. Participants are responsible for their own travel expenses (like plane tickets and some local travel), meals during working days and other personal costs.

The fee for participants from China, who do not need accommodation, are 80 euros or equivalent in Chinese yuan, including the above arrangements, except for the accommodation in Hangzhou.

During past editions participants often successfully arranged financial compensation for their Wetskills participation from their university or employer. We therefore strongly encourage applicants to inquire about funding opportunities to compensate the costs (university mobility funds, travel allowance etc.).
