Crystal clear water, in every ocean, from every tap. That’s Dopper’s goal. Pretty ambitious, but we’re not in this alone.

We’re coming to The Netherlands, the UK, Germany and Nepal.

So, if you want to make an impact with your graduation project or thesis about water and/or plastic waste, sign up! This is your chance to win funding up to €5.000,-, to get featured in the media, to be invited on stage and to get useful network introductions. And to save the planet, of course. Sign up before 12 April 2019!



Don’t wait for change to happen, challenge yourself to be the changemaker!
