The beta version of the EIP Water Online Marketplace went live on on 26 August.

It aims to facilitate matchmaking between water innovators, specifically linking demand with supply. The Marketplace will serve as a single point of access for information on water innovation in Europe and across the world, and as a virtual meeting point and collaboration space for the European and global water innovation community.

Become part of this contemporary community by registering your user profile and take full advantage of the Marketplace features to connect with other water innovators!

Within three weeks after the launch over 130 individuals have already registered their profile and we receive a lot of useful feedback on the beta version. As a registered user, you can make yourself known to others, boost your water innovation network, promote your services and products, find new partners, and - last but not least - play an active role in the on-going optimization of the Marketplace towards a more final version by sending in your comments!
