Our European Collaboration Projects
H20-people is also a collaboration partner designing tailor-made strategies for participation and funding within EU and other projects. We focus on the human capital element in programs – thus empowering people to develop their potential for generating solutions for tomorrow’s challenges. H20 people is available to enter into small–medium project partnerships to facilitate larger trainings like summer school instruction on water-related topics. Our challenging programs support ambitions of managing a future of natural and technical transformations in the water sector.
Our current projects:
SMARTEN is an Erasmus+ project that supports digital transition and digital readiness, mainly in higher education and trainings. The two-year project focuses on water as a vital component of life and development, knowing that water benefits from more informed management of resources. Improvements are achieved through promoting an educational digital environment of equity, diversity and inclusion, as well as strengthening the strategic and virtual cooperation between higher education institutions and business partners in the European water sector.
The SPIRE-SAIS project aims to develop an industry-driven and proactive skills strategy. SPIRE-SAIS will assist the wider implementation and exploitation of industrial symbiosis and energy efficiency across energy-intensive industrial sectors represented in the project: chemicals, steel, engineering, non-ferrous metals, minerals, water, cement, and ceramics.

Working Group Human Capital
The scope of the by H2O-People/ European Junior Water Programme led WG Human Capital is to create an actionable appreciation within the water sector of the human factor at the European level. The aim is also to position the European water sector as a reference by the definition of a common agenda, creating possibilities and its level of expertise.
With the WG HC, we want to support and accelerate the innovative water sector with the creation of a human capital agenda. This WG is collecting knowledge to facilitate collaborations on human capital to support technical innovations and the creation of a water smart society. The knowledge and programmes of this WG can assist other working groups within Water Europe, since they all build upon their human capital.
The WG HC will also connect with the other WGs to collect information on their needs and knowledge for the skills agenda of the future. It will create Water Europe as inclusive organization with not only eye for the technical view of innovations but also room to development of innovations to the human capital.
