About the Event - What to Expect?
For seven days, the City of Porto, in Portugal, will become the European capital of water and innovation. A set of three major events will gather over 1000 participants, including decision makers and technicians of utilities, political leaders, regulators, industry and agriculture representatives, investigators, tech companies, startups, SMEâs and investors.
International leading voices and thought-leaders on water and innovation will discuss the key answers to the questions we now face in the water sector, under the EIP Water Conference 2017. Another conference, named Mayors & Water Conference 2017, will focus on Urban Water Agenda (2030) and show the innovative and sustainable water solutions implemented in cities. For students and young professionals, Water Innovation Lab (WIL) Europe Porto 2017 intends to shape the leaders of the future.
The common initiative for these three main events, which are deployed in various activities, is called Water & People and is composed of a set of actions aimed at involving the general population in the theme of "Water and Innovation", namely street animation and performing arts in Porto downtown and AquaPorto - Water Festival 2017 in the City Park. Get ready for the surprises about to come!
These initiatives are free of charge (except for WIL Europe Porto, the Site Visits and the Innovation Dinner) but registration is required.
