Worldwide we have completed multiple water training projects successfully. On this page you can find more information about our projects in Europe.

Future AquaVet trainers trained at the first seminar in Athens
The AquaVet curriculum was developed to improve the water efficiency technologies skills of the European water industry workforce. Two ‘Train the Trainer seminars’ were planned within the AquaVet project, one in Greece and a second one in Spain. At the seminars the future AquaVet Trainers are familiarised with the AquaVet curriculum and are offered practical tools to teach the curriculum.
In October 2016, a group of 27 experienced employees of wastewater treatment plants with high nitrogen level from Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany have followed the training programme Wastewater treatment to optimise their wastewater treatment skills. Our trainer of the year, Jack Jonk, challenged the participants to think in terms of systems and processes. This way of thinking was well received by the participants.
Multi-level capacity building for flood management
Romania is a member state of the European Union since 2007. Like other EU member states, Romania has to implement the EU Flood Directive. The implementation needs to be carried out mainly on regional level. However, in many cases, the regional authorities lack financial, managerial, and content related capacity to make sure the implementation is successful. Especially the implementation of the second phase of the EU Flood Directive (flood hazard & risk maps) leads to capacity problems. This project was aimed at the increase of capacity for regional water authorities concerning flood risk modeling, damage calculating, risk assessment and mapping.
A Training Needs Assessment for the members of three Water Councils in Crimea, Ukraine, was executed in a previous phase (2008). Afterwards, collaborative options for a possible local partner for the co-implementation of future training activities were researched and a local partner was identified. In the next ‘LOGO East II’ programme, a follow-up on the Training Needs Assessment is required through the development of a course on governance and multi stakeholder coordination, with the improvement of the Water Councils' performance as objective.
