Wetskills back in Israel!

Wetskills back in Israel!

After four years Wetskills is back in Israel (link). Wetskills-Israel 2017 has started this week: international participants from Israeli and Dutch universities work in mixed teams on cases from Netafim (drip irrigation), Mekorot (pollutants in drinking water system) and Mey Avivim water company Tel Aviv (odor control). Our local host is again Grand Water Research Institute of Technion University in Haifa.

After a nice Haifa Tour the participants went to some sites of national water carrier and Lake Kinnereth for water and cultural sites. On Tuesday the BrainHurricane was organized with speeddate sessions with various experts. After this the teams went further with brainstorming. Later in the week some of the teams had a tailored trip to see and feel more about their case.

Next week the finals will be organized in the framework of Watec Water technology Conference and Exhibition and during the business reception of Embassy of Kingdom of The Netherlands in Tel Aviv.
