The motto of the Water Innovation Europe 2020 Conference was “A Water-Smart Society For A Post-COVID19 Green Deal” and focused on how a water-smart society and industry could contribute to sustainable development in a Post-COVID19 world. A total of five specific sessions were held. Key messages of workshop regarding a successful Post-COVID19 Recovery Plan included: (1) We are all responsible for avoiding any future crises; hence, we all need to experiment, think out of the box, learn and embrace a forward-looking mindset; (2) Technological innovation is critical, if yet a means to an end. Social and financial innovation are also needed. We need new talent, new skills in the water sector, including a more integrated approach to policy design and implementation.
