About The Event

Wetskills Events Wave

5th Wetskills in Oman for concealing water solutions during the first Oman water week!

Because of the great successes of previous Wetskills Challenges in Oman (since 2011 up to 2023) we were thrilled to organize another event, the fifth edition: Wetskills Oman in 2024!

Are you a student or young professional from Oman, MENA region, or beyond, and do you want to make a difference in the water sector? Would you like to experience working in an international team to solve water cases with out-of-the-box solutions? Do you want to work on challenging water & sustainability issues? Are you interested to present your ideas for an international jury panel and audience during the Oman Water Week? This is your chance! Wetskills Foundation and partners are organizing the fifth Wetskills edition in Oman!

Wetskills Foundation is inviting students (Bachelor (final year), Master and PhD) and Young Professionals from universities and organizations worldwide with a passion for Water, Climate and Sustainability, to join this intergenerational event and apply for Wetskills-Oman 2024 (period: 13-24 January 2024). You can register by filling-in the online form (see button at the right side).

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

Participation fee for local participants from Oman who have local accommodation arrangements is 30 OMR. Participation fee for local and international participants, who need accommodation in Muscat is € 425,- (excl. VAT, only for Europe). This Participation fee includes accommodation, teambuilding activities, some lunches & dinners, field trips, workshops, 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: Wetskills Foundation and partners strive to lower costs for local participants, contact us for options.
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.).
