The Wetsus doctoral program has grown in the 13 years of its existence to a prime example of smart, regional specialization on water technology with a strong European connection between research institutes and industry partners. The research in the Wetsus program takes place in close collaboration with 90 companies that actively participate in the research through paying memberships to focused and high trust research themes. All Wetsus researchers have at least three contacts per year with these industry partners.

The combination of biological and chemical conversion technology with separation technology, high tech systems and new materials has high potential to develop important innovations in water technology, especially if researchers work in close collaboration, preferably at a single location. The critical mass of this program is concentrated in Wetsus’ interdisciplinary laboratory located in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands. The research facilities are excellent.

The research involves many different scientific disciplines and focuses on the following five main research areas in clean water production and waste water treatment:

New water sources

Sustainable water supply

Waste water treatment and reuse

Reuse and production of components and energy from water

Detection of pathogens and micro/nano pollutants
