From ETP to Multi-stakeholder Platform – The Remarkable Journey Unveiled
In a transformative journey initiated by the European Commission in 2004, Water Europe (WE) was born as the European Technology Platform (ETP) for water, initially known as WssTP. This status was renewed by the EC in 2013 as part of its ETP2020 strategy, solidifying WE’s role as a driving force in European water innovation.
A Decade of Evolution:
Founded on the principles of collaboration and innovation, WE underwent a pivotal shift in 2007. The platform transformed into a member-based multi-stakeholder organisation under Belgian law. Since then, WE’s membership and activities have witnessed continuous growth, aligning with its ambitious vision to represent the entire water value-chain.
European Water-Smart Society:
WE’s evolution mirrors its commitment to shaping a European Water-Smart Society. Through strategic initiatives and collaborative endeavours, the organisation has become a dynamic force fostering innovation and sustainability across the water sector.
