Leeuwarden has been singled out as a ‘United Nations Innovating City’. The United Nations has awarded this title to 18 cities in the world that are highly active with new technologies. Together with the Milwaukee Global Water Center, Leeuwarden was given the title for its water technology activities.
The Leeuwarden-based Water Campus believes that the title will present opportunities. The Water Campus focuses strongly on the treatment of drinking water, which is a global spearhead policy of the United Nations.
