Water Europe is a multistakeholder organization representing the full diversity of the water value chain. Our constituency reflects the diversity of roles, uses, and interests of water service providers, water users, technology providers, public authorities, and civil society.
Services to members are at the heart of the WE strategy. With our members’ needs as our guiding compass, we do our best to provide top-notch services to our diversified membership. Moreover, our Water Vision offers a long-term perspective endorsed by our members. In line with the ETP strategy developed by the European Commission, WE offers a wide range of services:
WE policy work
WE engages in policy-making in support of the implementation of its Water Vision. Concretely, WE pursues progressive and innovative policies that support the paradigm shift to a Water-Smart Society.
Through its Water Vision and its Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda, WE has set the mark on the horizon for raising the importance of the water topic in our society.
EU funding programmes
WE has a strong track record in promoting the importance of water in the European Research and innovation funding programmes, and in particular in the bi-annual programmes of HorizonEurope.
WE Working Groups
WE Working Groups are the grass-root level for members’ collaboration, producing technical and scientific inputs on a series of themes. WE facilitates their operation through a range of supportive actions.
MEP Water Group
WE is the management body of the MEP Water Group, an informal forum of Members of the European Parliament whose main objective is to raise the awareness of the value of water.
WE organises three key events per year. Each one of them has become an established landmark in its category and the meeting point of the European water sector.
Support to project consortia
WE offers its members the opportunity to make use of its extensive network and expertise in communication and dissemination, networking and exploitation activities in research project consortia that they participate.
WE releases one monthly members’ newsletter to inform its members, exclusively, on all kind of relevant news and developments that matter in the water sector.
Use of online collaboration tools
Responding to the needs of its members and the WE Working Groups, WE offers online collaboration tools to facilitate and support its members’ everyday exchanges.
Help desk function
WE office staff is service-minded and always available to support members where possible. Don’t hesitate to contact them: just send them an e-mail or give them a call.
The WE office facilities in the BluePoint Tech. Lounge are a reference point for members’ representatives who wish to visit Brussels or organise their own events there.
