Water Reuse Europe is pleased to invite submissions for its 2017 award on Innovations in Water Reuse.

The aims of this prize are to reward the professionals who are breaking new ground in the design and delivery of water reuse projects and showcase projects and initiatives which are at the forefront of reuse practice in Europe.

On the occasion of our first conference and exhibition that will take place in Bruges on the 9th and 10th of October 2017, Water Reuse Europe will present an award for the:

Most Innovative Water Reuse Scheme in Europe

Any legal person representing a European company or institution is welcome to submit an application. Qualifying schemes will have been operational during the 12 months to October 2017.

Applications will be judged by an award jury made up of the directors of Water Reuse Europe. Submissions will be judged against three equally weighted criteria; (i) novelty and innovation, (ii) effective collaboration; (iii) impact.

Applicants can self-nominate or submissions can be made by a third-party. Applicants must fill in the online application form and submit a two-page (1000 words maximum) presentation of their scheme. The submission may include illustrations (figures, pictures, links to online sources etc.).

Three finalists will be invited to the Water Reuse Europe Conference in Bruges, where their scheme will be showcased during the award session before the winner is officially announced. Finalists are expected to attend the conference as a delegate.

Applications must be submitted before the 31st of August 2017
