One of the great things about this centre is that it will be science and innovation driven but very much business focused, directly aimed at the challenges that we face as a company and the water industry as a whole faces.

The transdisciplinary research centre at Exeter provides a great opportunity to help answer some of the big questions facing the water sector. The centre will be a focal point, not only for trialling new solutions but also for bringing together regulators, utilities, the supply chain and academia.
