Meet Karin at the WATEC conference this week in Tel Aviv.
It happens every two years, and this week delegations from all corners of the planet are expected to converge in Tel Aviv, Israel for the two-day water conference and expo called WATEC. I interviewed Booky Oren this year, the conference chair, about what to expect. Formerly the chair and CEO of Mekorot, Israel’s national water carrier, Oren says that this year’s conference focuses on I2I: Innovation to Implementation.
Israel has experience in water technology innovation and implementation, and the country is aiming to attract open-source water partnerships with cities around the world to solve water shortage and energy efficiency problems on a global scale.
The event – for first-timers – is a great way to meet some local innovators, and big water companies like IDE. For local entrepreneurs it’s a good way to rub shoulders with potential investors.
