About The Event

Wetskills Events Wave

The third edition of Wetskills South-Korea!

Because of the succes of a memorable first (Olympic) edition of a Wetskills Water Challenge in South-Korea in February 2018 (read here) and the great successor in August/September 2019 (read here), we were thrilled to organize the third edition of Wetskills South-Korea this year!

Are you a student or young professional from South Korea and beyond, and do you want to make a difference in the water sector? Would you like to experience working in an international team and experiencing the culture of Korea? Do you want to work on challenging water & sustainability issues? Are you interested to visit the KSWE Conference and the exhibition of Korea Water and present your ideas for an international jury panel and audience? This is your chance! Wetskills Foundation and partners are organising the third Wetskills edition in South Korea!

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-South Korea 2022 (period: 24 August – 2 September 2020). You can register by filling-in the online form (Botton at the right side).

Let's Share the Water Passion. Let's Stay Connected.

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 € 150,- (VAT free). Korean partner KSWE will create some vouchers for Korean students to join this event free of charge. The selection for these vouchers will be made amongst the registrations received, after the deadline

Participation fee for international participants is € 395,- (excl. VAT). 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.).
