About The Event

Wetskills Events Wave

For the first time to Hungary!

Wetskills Foundation will organize its water challenge for the first time in Budapest, Hungary. It will be the tenth time overall in Europe, after previous events in Romania, United Kingdom and The Netherlands. The Wetskills Foundation invites Bachelor, Master, PhD students and recent graduates in Hungary, Europe and from over the world to apply for this new Wetskills Challenge.

This edition of Wetskills is starting on 5 October. The finals and presentations will be aligned to the Budapest Water Summit (15-17 October).

‘Preventing water crises is the most important and topical ethical, social, economic and political commandment of our time.’

The Budapest Water Summit 2019, under the motto ‘Preventing Water Crises’ aims to promote solutions that tackle the problems of the emerging water crises we have to face, building around the issues of abundant, scarce and polluted water. Moreover, the Summit will provide a platform for political decision-makers, representatives of the economic and finance sectors, as well as the members of the scientific society to discuss the challenges and find solutions on how to achieve a water-secure world.

The Wetskills programme will take the participants to the beautiful city of Budapest with the Danube River. In the 2-weeks program, participants will work in international, multidisciplinary teams on real-life water cases. To all who are interested in water challenges in Hungary and staying in the beautiful City of Budapest, this is your chance!
