Development CentresSay hello
Unlocking innovation in the water sector
Innovation and its acceleration is vital to meeting the challenges faced by the water industry both now and in the future.
One of the major barriers to innovation is the lack of opportunity for researchers and companies to demonstrate new products at scale.
That’s what we’ve created two Development Centres to provide innovators with dedicated space to test prototype equipment, processes and technologies in live, operational-scale environments – perfect for validation and commercialisation.
The first of their kind in the UK, our Water and Waste Water Development Centres are helping research hubs and businesses speed up innovation delivery, providing an investor-ready pipeline of new processes and products.
We also recognise that successful collaboration between industry, academia and the public sector is the key to a sustainable future. From webinars, networking events and demonstration days, we’re engaging with a number of innovators to foster a culture of knowledge sharing and co-working.
We have a team of experts to help your trial run smoothly. As well as specialist guidance and support, our service also includes:
