Wetskills welcomes participants to The Netherlands!

At the moment we are preparing the next Wetskills edition in The Netherlands. As the last six previous Amsterdam International Water Weeks, Wetskills will be organized. This Netherlands Wetskills event will be aligned to the AIWW event, as well as the Aquatech in Amsterdam (5-8 November 2023).

Are you a student or young professional from Europe 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 The Netherlands? Do you want to work on challenging water, climate & sustainability issues? Are you interested to visit the AIWW2023 Conference and the Aquatech Amsterdam exhibition? Do you want to present your ideas for an international jury panel and audience? This is your chance! Wetskills Foundation and partners are organising the ninth Wetskills edition in The Netherlands overall!

Wetskills Foundation is inviting students (Bachelor (final year), Master and PhD) and Young Professionals from universities and organisations worldwide with a passion for Water, Climate and Sustainability, to join this intergenerational event and apply for Wetskills-The Netherlands 2023 (period: 28 October to 9 November 2023).

Participation fee for international participants is € 475,- (excl. VAT). This participation fee includes accommodation. Participation fee for local applicants, who do not need accommodation arrangements, is € 125,- (VAT free).

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.
