SIWI is seeking nine committed young professionals to provide support to World Water Week’s Scientific Programme Committee.
Joining the Young Scientific Programme Committee (YSPC) is an opportunity for young professionals to expand their network and gain valuable experience. SIWI will provide each of the YSPC members with a full week complimentary registration to World Water Week.
As one of the leading actors in the water sector, Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) is committed to developing the future leaders of the water community. SIWI has organised the prestigious Stockholm Junior Water Prize competition since 1997, and since 2008 the Young Water Professionals Seminar.
The Young Scientific Programme Committee initiative, which started in 2011, provides professionals at the start of their careers with an exciting opportunity to collaborate with top level scientists and water professionals in developing the programme of one of the most renowned water conferences. In addition, the involvement of young professionals will provide the Scientific Programme Committee with fresh input and perspectives.
Each year World Water Week addresses a particular theme to enable a deeper examination of a specific water related topic. The thematic scope for World Water Week is formulated by its Scientific Programme Committee (SPC), which also sets the seminar topics, reviews and selects the submitted abstracts and develops the seminar programmes. The theme for World Water Week 2019 is “Water for society – Including all“.
- To be eligible, candidates should be under 35 years of age.

- Screen and review abstracts received for each of the seminars (January to March)
