Would you like to experience working in an international team and experiencing the culture of Oman? Do you want to work on challenging water & sustainability issues? Are you interested to visit the Oman Sustainability Week? Would you like to present your ideas for an international jury panel and audience at the Sultan Qaboos University? This is your chance! Wetskills Foundation and partners are organising the fourth Wetskills edition in Oman!

Wetskills Foundation is inviting students (Bachelor (final year), Master and PhD) and Young Professionals from universities and organisations worldwide with a passion for Water-Energy-Food, to join this intergenerational event and apply for Wetskills-Oman 2023 (period: 5-15 March 2023).

Selection criteria

The Wetskills organization will make a final selection among applications received, based on quality of motivation & resume. The organisation will also consider a good diversity of the whole group (incl. backgrounds, local/international, gender balance, etc.).

Costs

Participation fee for local applicants, who do not need accommodation arrangements, is 20 OMR (VAT free).

Participation fee for international participants is € 395,- (excl. VAT, only for Europe). This participation fee includes accommodation.

The Participation fee (with or without accomodation) includes teambuilding activities, some lunches & dinners, field trips, workshop, supervision, trainings and working venues. Participants are responsible for their own travel expenses (plane tickets, local travel, etcetera), meals during working days and other personal costs.

Note: 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.).
