Created in the summer of 2015 and officially constituted in 2016 with the support of the Spanish Association of Water Supply and Sanitation (AEAS), the Young Water Professionals-Spain (YWP-Spain) has more than 120 members from administrative agencies, research centers, universities, NGOs, associations, consultancies and other professions related to the water sector.
YWP-Spain is a body of the International Water Association (IWA), the sector's benchmark organization worldwide. This international network, made up of its national groups, is represented in five continents, and seeks to serve as a bridge between professionals of different ages, interests and backgrounds.
The Spanish division has been structured in several coordination areas: international events, communication, innovation, among others. It has to be noted that the CIMNE researcher David J. Vicente participates in the coordination area of 'Innovation and academic training'.
