Leading the WATER Research Agenda

UKWIR has been positively shaping the UK water industry's future for over 25 years.
We facilitate, manage & deliver a strategic programme of research projects for our members, the Water Companies of the UK and Ireland, to address the key challenges they face.  We do this by providing leadership in shaping the future water research agenda.

 

Big questions

The focus of our research is captured in our Big Questions.  These questions cover many Research Themes and activities of work and represent the key challenges they face, now and in the future.
