Next Generation Water Action


Next Generation Water Action is an ambitious initiative that will engage young talents from leading universities and early stage start-ups. In collaboration with corporate and public partners, more than 100 students and entrepreneurs of early stage startups from Denmark, Mexico, India, Korea, and Kenya will build skills and apply their technical disciplines, innovation capacity and solutions to challenge and catalyze water solutions towards smart livable cities.
The collaborative innovation process enables to involve university students through challenge based course work and start-ups with partners from industry, academia and public sector.

Together with our partners, we bring forward a tailored program, bringing a youth track that goes way beyond “attendance of youth”. A virtual and multi-hub set-up enables the international young professionals to connect and co-create solutions with industry partners, mentors and other participants across the globe.
