Our European Collaboration Projects
H20-people is also a collaboration partner designing tailor-made strategies for participation and funding within EU and other collaboration 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 current efforts towards 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, that benefits from informed management of resources and related information. Improvements are seen 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 that will assist the wider implementation and exploitation of industrial symbiosis and energy efficiency across the energy intensive industrial sectors represented in SPIRE: 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 sensitivity within the water sector to the human factor of the sector at European level and positioning the European water sector as a reference in this domain 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 will collect the knowledge and will set up and supports collaborations on human capital to support the technical innovations and the creation of a water smart society. The knowledge and programmes of this WG can be of service to all 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 for 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.
