The inaugural summit of the Hydro Nations Programme was held in Scotland in September at the stunning Harburn Estate at the base of the Pentland hills.
It was attended by 40 like minded people building amazing business from all over the world.
"This programme has delivered real commercial opportunities for many of the people here, opportunities that are directly related to solving some of the biggest problems in India and across the world."
Peter Murphy, Hydro Nation Water Innovation Service
“This is a very different and innovative approach, a country that is looking at global problems not as issues but as resources, the thinking here is heads and tails above any other market I have tried to work with."
Peter Christou, CEO, Swirltex Ltd
"I think this is the only way, a programme that brings the world to a problem, that engages and learns from communities, and leverages governments, big business and entrepreneurs to create solutions that are long-term, cost effective, sustainable, inclusive and transformative."
Sanmit Ahuja, Head of Investment and Innovation, Centre for Ganga River Basin Management & Studies
"A programme like this can power huge developments with issues that we are all passionate about. It is fantastic to be collaborating with other countries like India who have got a similar attitude to cutting through some of the normal routes to solve these problems.”
Team Leader, Water Industry Team, Scottish Government.
