The CEW works from the following mission & vision:
We encourage public-private partnerships for innovation and knowledge development in the field of water technology. This innovation and knowledge development contribute to the knowledge economy and to solving major societal challenges.
We stimulate cooperation by connecting supply and demand of applied knowledge, from governments, the business community and universities of applied sciences. As a broker and intermediary, CEW wants to become the leading knowledge hub in the field of innovative water technology and sustainable water management.
We do this based on the vision that companies, universities of applied sciences and governments have different needs that require joint investment in innovation and knowledge development, education and research.
