Solutions for water challenges in Wetskills-Romania 2024

Get ready for an immersive journey into water innovation! We would like to invite you to seize the opportunity and apply for a coveted spot at the Wetskills-Romania 2024 event. Following the resounding success of the last editions, Wetskills will organise its 7th event in this challenging country. The program is scheduled to commence on 7 September with a teambuilding experience in Bucharest and Brasov (TBC) and will culminate in a grand finale featuring pitches and a poster market on 20 September in Constanta.

The Wetskills Foundation extends a warm invitation to Bachelor, Master, PhD students, recent graduates, and young professionals who are enthusiastic about water, climate, and sustainability to apply for the Wetskills Challenge taking place in Romania, from 7 to 20 September 2024. In a world where water issues are more crucial than ever due to persistent droughts, floods, and water quality issues, your innovative solutions to pressing Romanian water challenges are urgently required. Seize this unique opportunity and apply now (use the link on the right).

Romania has a very diverse landscape and water system, with high mountains and the largest Delta of the European Union: Danube Delta. Romania faces challenges in water and wastewater, in both large urban areas as well as remote rural villages, and has a large water management experience of dealing with floods and droughts. And the country itself is inspiring and various: From the booming big Bucharest with its historic buildings and churches, People’s Parliament and the Old City with bars and pubs, to idyllic smaller cities and villages in epic Transylvania, the dry Wallachia lowlands (border to Bulgaria) and Europe’s largest bio-reserve Danube Delta.
