On 29th of May the iWatermap Water Technology Innovation Roadmaps project was held in Brussels, bringing together all the partners involved in the project, including the Water Research Laboratory. The meeting sought answers to various questions. Do the university and the manufacturing companies fully cooperate? Are manufacturing companies willing to invest in R & D? Is the university looking for new talents purposefully? Does the university have anything to offer to companies? Do water companies start projects with public funding? Is there enough critical mass to make water technology in Latvia RIS3? One of the main objectives of the project is to look for answers to these and similar issues and improve the innovation ecosystem in the water sector.
The project partners also participated in the ERRIN conference «Water Technology & Circular Economy» on 30th of May.
The iWatermap project launch meeting will take place from 24 to 27 September in the framework of the European Water Tech Week (EWTW; http://www.watercampus.nl/ewtw2018/).
