Wetskills-United Arab Emirates (Dubai) 2022

5 januari 2022 - 17 januari 2022

United Arab Emirates 2022: from WorldExpo Shanghai to Dubai!

[Note: this event has been postponed to January 2022. Coming weeks a new announcement will be launched. Interested to join? Please register on this page!]


Wetskills Foundation and partners are delighted to announce a very unique event: United Arab Emirates (Dubai) 2021. On 1 November 2021 we will organise a day full of workshops including the Finals & Awarding, in The Netherlands Pavilion of the WorldExpo. This Worldexpo is a very special place: it is where Wetskills started in Shanghai 2010.

Teams of students and young water professionals (with diverse backgrounds, nationalities and experiences) will work on real life water cases in an exciting two-week programme. Their main challenge: to think out-of-the-box and develop innovative, but realistic concepts.

The Wetskills teams will present their ideas with a two minute pitch, Q&A and a poster on 1 November 2021 in The Netherlands Pavilion. The winning team will be awarded by the jury later. All participants will have access to the WorldExpo terrain to present their pitches, join the professional workshops on resilience and water, and visit other pavilions as well.

"It has indeed been a fruitful, joyous and amazing time as the 26 participants spend two weeks enjoying each others company, learning,exploring and finding ways to work as a team together and solve six pressured, difficult cases. This has in fact been an experience to remember for each and everyone participant for 2019! (Wetskills Alumni)"
