The Dutch water sector is internationally recognized for its history and expertise. Through centuries, the sector has gained a lot of experience and knowledge about water protection and water management. The sector is also seen as quite traditional.

As an Accenture intern, you will investigate the future of the water sector in the Netherlands. We would like to define the research objectives together with you, questions you can think of are:  Which processes and technologies are required to deal with contemporary and future challenges in the water infrastructure?
