Smart Water Network Conference

In March 2017 Professor Dragan Savic chaired the Smart Water Network Conference in Birmingham.

It attracted over 100 delegates from the most important companies, providers and academic institutions in the water industry. Its aim was to show water businesses how to increase their success through smart technologies and data solutions. With increasing demand on water companies to meet demand and cut costs, this type of technology has many applications. For example, predictive analysis can prevent sewer flooding. Customer relationships with water companies are enhanced using smart technology which drives long term business benefits. Speakers included Craig Wellman of Virgin Media, Nigel Watson of Northumbrian Water and Dr Steve Mounce from the University of Sheffield.
