The Stockholm Water Prize is often described as the Nobel Prize of water and is characterized by a similar selection process. Since 1991, the Stockholm International Water Institute, SIWI, honours people and organizations for extraordinary water-related achievements.  

 

This year the Stockholm Water Prize  was awarded to Professor Emeritus Wilfried Brutsaert, UGent alumnus and emeritus professor of  Cornell University, for his innovative work on evaporation and groundwater storage that has helped improve climate modeling and technologies to estimate and measure evaporation. Water managers can thank Professor Brutsaert’s research for new tools that let them more accurately assess how much water is available.  

 

Wilfried Brutsaert  graduated in soil and hydraulic engineering at the faculty of Bioscience Engineering in 1958.
