CEWP Business and Innovation Program 2019

The Chinese Water Market has been growing at huge growth rates for several years. Recently this has even been accelerated, not least due to substantially, increasing regulatory demands by the Chinese Government, following the launch of the Water Ten Action Plan. Accordingly, this market is considered to be one of the most important major markets to access for European Water Tech Companies, not only to gain market shares, but also to be closely connected to the strong, innovative momentum which is being released during these years in China.

The China Europe Water Platform (CEWP) Business and Innovation Program will during 2019-2021 focus on three, selected market segments for water technologies: Industrial Water Use in 2019, Urban Water (Sponge Cities, Wastewater Treatment, Leakage Reduction) in 2020 and Rural Water (Water for the Agricultural Sector, and Water Supply and Sanitation Systems for Towns and Villages ) 2021. The aim is at the same time to contribute to creation of a well-functioning market, to support building of Chinese-European Innovation-oriented partnerships and to facilitate the entry for European Companies to the Chinese Market.

At the core of the Business and Innovation Program, attention will be paid to solutions, which addresses the needs and challenges of the future, including a focus on application of circular economy approaches, the perspectives of digitalization, climate change resilience, supporting the UN SDGs and establishment of frameworks for business-cases. Through Open Innovation Meets, relation-building between Chinese and European Water Sector will be facilitated.

On November 11th-15th, 2019, the CEWP Business and Innovation Program gives you the opportunity to visit two Tech Expos within the same travel by initiating side-events at both venues of the EUPIC Twin Fair in Chengdu and Qingdao. Here you will meet Chinese Industrial Processing Companies with needs for upgrading of their technologies, as well as Chinese Water Tech Companies who could be your new partner at this interesting market.

The program will include at least three activities:
