More than 120 companies across Europe took part at this event, which took place on 21st November, representing the European environment, water and engineering sectors.

The Seminar was divided into two main sessions where firstly EuropeAid, the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, among others, presented their different programs and financial instruments for the Water Supply and Wastewater Treatment Sectors.

Secondly the European Commission presented the EU Blending Facilities in the water sector, particularly focusing on the opportunities for the private sector.

Eptisa had the opportunity to join a panel together with the companies Safege (FR) and Mott McDonald (UK), where Eptisa shared its deep experience working with the European Union. Eptisa reflected on the challenges and opportunities faced when working with the EU. This was also the ocassion to present Eptisa´s successful projects in the water sector as the Kura River project, a pioneer and transnational project financed by the EU.

The seminar finalized with different meetings "one to one" with the companies that attended, where Eptisa had the opportunity to meet potential partner companies for future collaborations.
