Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz International Prize for Water (PSIPW)
The Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz International Prize for Water (PSIPW) is a leading scientific prize with a focus on innovation. Established in 2002 by HRH Crown Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz, it rewards the efforts made by scientists, inventors and research organizations around the world which contribute to the sustainable availability of potable water and the alleviation of the escalating global problem of water scarcity.
To this end, PSIPW awards a suite of five prizes every two years, covering the entire water research landscape. In this way, PSIPW encourages research to find solutions to the various water-related challenges facing the world today.
Since 1947, VERBUND – founded as Österreichische Elektrizitätswirtschafts-AG – has been helping to shape the energy future: even back then we relied on hydropower and thus renewable energies. Today, more than 70 years later, VERBUND is the largest and climate-friendliest producer of electricity in Austria. Almost 100% of our electricity comes from hydropower, supplemented with wind and thermal power.
Since its establishment in 1918, the ministry has been working to strengthen rural areas. After all, this is where two thirds of the Austrian people live. At the time of the monarchy, as much as three quarters of the Austrian population were farmers. Stable circumstances for agriculture have been a core issue then, and they still are now.
PORR deliberately focuses on its core competency: construction. With their strategy of intelligent growth, they concentrate on the result, not on production output.
The Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute (BAW) is the main provider of science and technology services to the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) and the Federal Waterways and Shipping Administration (WSV) with regard to all hydraulic engineering issues associated with the building, operation and maintenance of Germany’s federal waterways.
