Over three days, Water Innovation Europe 2016 attracted more than 200 participants from all around Europe. The 2016 edition of WssTP annual stakeholder conference ‘Water-Smart! European Solutions for a Smart Water Society’ was held with great success from the 21st to 23rd of June in Brussels at the Diamant Conference Centre in Brussels.

Thirty distinguished speakers from all the aspects of the European water sector contributed to the agenda of Water Innovation Europe 2016 conference that revolved around four key areas:

    • Water on the interface between the physical and digital world
      Water-energy-food nexus in practice
      The value of Water
      Water for a sustainable society
  • Water Innovation Europe conference, once again, provided participants with a platform to have stimulating discussions, share data, generate ideas and initiate collaborations.
