Event description
A network event for businesses, researchers, creative thinkers & practitioners looking to impact the water and environment sectors.

About this Event

  • Want to make a difference in the water and environment sectors?
  • Interested in open innovation and opportunities to pitch answers to challenges set by industry leaders?
  • Looking to meet and network with like-minded individuals across sectors to explore new ideas and opportunities?

The urgency has never been greater for us to develop new and sustainable ways to secure and sustain our water. Often the most innovative and impactful solutions come from the cross-section of creative ideas and collaborations from across the sector and beyond. Ripple has been designed to help facilitate these forms of engagement and knowledge exchange. Whether you already work within the water sector or are looking for opportunities to expand into these areas, Ripple is for you.

Join us for a day of networking, opportunities, pitches, and challenges at the Life Centre in Newcastle. This will be an all-day event, with refreshments and lunch served. Priority will be given to those businesses operating in the North East area.

In addition to signing up for this event, you can also sign up to:

  • Make a short pitch for a new product, idea, or innovation for the water and environment sectors
  • Host a stall at the event to promote your business, practice, or innovation
  • Attend one-to-one sessions with water sector industry and government representatives during the event

Important: Sign up by February 20 if you want to make a pitch or have a stall at this event!

More information on the schedule, confirmed speakers, and additional opportunities will be posted to EventBrite and registered participants in the coming days!
