Innovation Prize 2020

We are pleased to invite submissions for our 2020 Innovation Prize.

Back in 2017, our first award was presented to Aquabio for their water reuse solution at Bakkavor’s Cucina Sano site in Boston, Lincolnshire, UK. In 2019, the Water Reuse Europe Innovation Prize went to the new indirect potable reuse scheme of Mörbylånga in Sweden. We are now on the look out for 2020’s Most Innovative Water Reuse Scheme in Europe. Will it be yours?

The aim of the Water Reuse Europe prize is 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.

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 November 2020.

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.

Scheme designers or operators can self-nominate or submissions can be made by a third-party.

Applicants must submit their application by email to: secretariat@water-reuse-europe.org using the word application form provided below. The submission may include illustrations (figures, pictures, links to online sources etc.).

The three finalists will be promoted across our online platforms during the week preceding our webinar on “Impact of the New EU regulations on Water Reuse for Agriculture from End-Users’ perspectives” on the 3rd December 2020. The winner will be officially announced during an award session at the close of the webinar.

Applications must be submitted before the 15th of November 2020.

Entries are judged by the directors of Water Reuse Europe based on three criteria: (i) innovation and (ii) collaboration  and  (iii) impact.
