3rd IWA BeNeLux Young Water Professional Regional Conference
In order to meet the current and future needs of the water sector a continuous development of skills and leadership of the Young Water Professionals is required. Four years ago it was therefore decided to start up the Young Water Professionals movement in the BeNeLux. This movement is supported by the International Water Association (IWA). The main objective of this movement is to support the BeNeLux Young Water Professionals (up to 35 years) in their growth towards future leadership. One of the activities of the YWP BeNeLux is the organization of a biennial conference. The first conference was held in 2009 in Eindhoven, the second in 2011 in Leuven. The next conference will be held in Belval from 2 to 4 October 2013. This event will provide an international forum for students, young researchers and professionals working in the water sector to present their work and meet their peers from Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Next to formal congress activities such as lectures, also different side events (career building, cultural visit) will be organized. We hope to welcome you all in Luxembourg forthe third BeNeLux YWP Conference.
