About The Event

Wetskills Events Wave

Wetskills goes to Israel again!

The Wetskills organization invites Bachelor, Master, PhD students and recent graduates to apply for the Wetskills Water Challenge program in Israel. Blueprint for this Wetskills edition is the previous edition in Israel in 2013. The Wetskills finals and awarding will be organized during the WATEC Conference and Exhibition: LINK

Apply for this great opportunity to participate in one of the Wetskills Water Challenges!

We are looking for students and Young Professionals from universities and organisations from across the globe, passionate about water and excited to work in mixed teams for transdisciplinary water solutions. Apply on the website for Wetskills-Israel 2017 (period: 3 – 14 September 2017).

Application deadlines

First deadline for application and selection: 1 June 2017. Afterwards every two weeks a selection of the new applications till the programme is full. (First Come, First Served)


Participation costs are *450 euros (including accommodation at Technion Campus) or **150 euros excluding accommodation (for Israeli/Palestinian participants). If you apply before the 15 May 2017 you get an early bird discount of *50 (included accommodation) or **25 euros. The fee includes *accommodation, programme costs, supervision, some social activities, field trips, working locations, presentations and the awarding event during the WATEC Conference and Exhibition. It does not include transport, some meals and your 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.

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.).
