Connect With The International Water Sector

What’s In It For You?

Is your university organizing a water-related event and would you like to involve YWP or students? Do you like to host a Wetskills event or send some of your students (Bachelor, Master or PhD) to one of the next Wetskills events? Are you looking for exchange opportunities? Would you like to do research on out-of-box ideas (WetsNext)? Are you looking to international universities with water-related track for cooperation?

How It Works

Water event


Wetskills connects with universities all over the world. These universities have the possibility to network with local water companies, government and other universities.


Organisations provide an inspiring Water Challenge for a team of Students and Young Professionals. They thereby promote their company and connect with young talent.


Students and young professionals from these universities join the Wetskills Events and work in a team to solve the water issues in the cases provided by organisations.
