Innovation means creating value from new ideas – whether it’s academia, the supply chain, water company employees, stakeholders and experts from other sectors. UKWIR’s goal is to use those ideas to create a common platform for research and innovation in the UK and drive the changes that are needed to meet future challenges, such as population growth, climate change and resilience, through 12 Big Questions.
There are also other emerging opportunities to explore including digital transformation, the social contract and sustainability. The key to achieving these ambitious outcomes will be through the effective collaboration of everyone with a vested interest in water. This event provides a great opportunity for senior representatives from the industry, and beyond, to come together not only to share ideas and experiences, but also to identify the part they can all play in helping answer UKWIR’s Big Questions.
This event, the first of its kind organised by UKWIR, will bring together senior representatives from water companies, regulators, the supply chain, academia, other utilities and related industries, both from the UK and abroad, to share ideas and ambitions that drive greater innovation – and which ultimately improve outcomes for customers, society and the environment.
The event will include interactive forums that explore UKWIR’s 12 Big Questions, alongside opportunities to create new, collaborative platforms for research and innovation and identify knowledge gaps and areas for improvement.
The key-note speakers for the day are Mike Elliott, Technical Director at Mercedes Formula1 team, and Heidi Mottram, CEO of Northumbrian Water. View the full agenda
