The AEWEN project has one year!

One year ago, four European clusters specialised in the water and energy sectors launched an ambitious project: AEWEN for Africa Europe Water & Energy Network.

What is the AEWEN project?

This European funded project aims to build a sustainable African-European network to encourage collaborations on innovative water and green energy solutions and to support the internationalisation of SMEs. Three African countries are involved in this project: Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia.
