From 10 to 13 October 2023, the AEWEN members participated in Pollutec Lyon. Dedicated to water, energy and environment, this fair gathered over 1500 exhibitors from all over the world. It was a good opportunity to meet with African delegations, especially those from Tunisia and Morocco.
Many companies from the network also attended the fair, either as exhibitors or visitors. Visitors were invited to connect with AEWEN exhibiting companies thanks to a self-guided tour edited for the occasion (see pdf hereafter). The AEWEN team themselves organised a tour to meet and discuss about the members’ products and projects. This allowed to strengthen the relationships developed over time and hopefully lead to new collaborations.
The fair also represented the opportunity to highlight AEWEN’s activities. On October 11, the consortium organised an afternoon dedicated to water & energy in Africa. After the proposed tour to meet with companies from the network, companies were invited to take part in a conference on collaborations between Africa and Europe. About 25 companies attended the AEWEN presentation. The day ended with a networking cocktail and great expectations for the final days of the fair.
