During the project the Water Test Network project will issue different Innovation Challenges. Water sector end users (public utilities, large industries) have the opportunity to submit existing water problems to which a solution is sought from innovative SMEs. The SMEs will be engaged to these challenges in a ‘meet the buyer’ type of exercise.
Innovation Challenge – Generate value from Brines
For the latest innovation challenge the WTN is looking for SMEs who are developing technologies to generate value from brines. Focus is on brines from drinking water production, (industrial) wastewater treatment and geothermal sites. Technologies should be at least at TRL 4. You will be in a position to showcase your innovative technology in a real test environment. SMEs, preferentially located in the North West European region, can apply by submitting an application form no later than 5 September 2021 at 12 pm.
The Water Test Network (WTN) project has a transnational network of testing facilities which can be used by SMEs in North-West Europe (NWE) to test, demonstrate and develop new products for the water sector. In this way, new innovations will be developed and it will accelerate the time to market.
