28 October 2021, ONLINE

UKWIR logo




After a challenging 18 months, we’re really excited to bring the sector together for UKWIR’s second annual conference, taking place virtually on the 28th October.

Since the last conference, we have seen Ofwat’s Innovation in Water Challenge and Water Breakthrough Challenge launch – injecting much needed funding into innovation and enabling our centre of excellence, Spring, to take shape.

UKWIR’s Big Questions continue delivering new research in the areas that matter most to the industry – securing precious water resources, protecting the health of our rivers and seas and meeting operational net zero carbon emissions. All of which requires the entire sector to work together.

Regulators, companies, innovators and the supply chain all have crucial roles to play in setting the sector up for future success. Which is why collaboration is the theme of our second annual conference.

We have a fantastic line-up of speakers including:

  • Kara Cartright – Innovation Lead – Clean Growth at Innovate UK
  • Harry Armstrong – Director of Regulatory Policy, Ofwat
  • Dan Green – Head of Innovation and Sustainability, Wessex Water
  • Tony Harrington – Environment Director, Welsh Water
  • Carly Perry – Consultant Executive Lead, Spring
  • Shaunna Berendsen – Client Programme Director, Spring
  • Denise Massey – Managing Director, Energy Innovation Centre

The conference will be chaired again this year by Niki Roach, Director & Co-founder of AxiaOrigin.
