For The Fifth Time To Romania!
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, immens large People’s Parliament and the Old City with bars, pubs as heart of the City to idillic smaller cities and villages in epic Transylvania and more low and dry Wallachia (border to Bulgaria) and the Europe’s largest bioreserve Danube Delta.
Wetskills Foundation and partners will organize the Wetskills Challenge for the fifth time in Bucharest, Hungary. This Wetskills edition in Romania will be hosted by the University of Agronomic Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Bucharest. Wetskills Foundation partner with other Romanian academia Politehnica University of Bucharest and Technical University for Civil Engineering in Bucharest. Other main partners are Romanian Water Association, Apele Romane and the Embassy of The Kingdom of The Netherlands.
This edition of Wetskills will start on 12 September 2021, and is in and around to the great city of Bucharest. During the 2-weeks program the participants will work in international, multidisciplinary teams on real-life water cases. The finals and awarding will be an hybrid workshop with livestream on 23 September.
