Water Europe (WE) is the recognized voice and promotor of water-related innovation and RTD in Europe.
WE is a value-based multi-stakeholder association with over 250 members representing the whole diversity of the innovative water eco-system that share a vision for building a Water-Smart Society. WE was established by the European Commission as a European Technology Platform (ETP). All our activities have been grouped in 3 main programmes: the WE Advocacy Programme, the WE Collaboration Programme, and the WE Market Programme.
In line with our ambition to represent the whole water ecosystem, we have organized our membership in seven different colleges that are in turn grouped into 2 main categories: Corporate and Associate members. The difference between the two is that corporate members pay a membership fee and can participate to our governance, whereas the associated member do not.
WE membership is NOT limited in time and automatically renewed on a full calendar year basis. Membership cancellations for the next year need to be submitted to the Executive Director before the 1st of October of the running year.
