World Water-Tech Innovation Summit

World Water Week

Accelerating collaboration and commercialisation for climate resilient water management 

The 2017 World Water-Tech Innovation Summit focuses on accelerating the adoption of commercially viable technologies to build resilience and meet the demand for sustainable water supply. It is a truly international event focusing on current and emerging markets and will be held in partnership with the Department of International Trade (DIT) and the UK Water Partnership.

Our Chairman Richard Benyon will be presenting the Keynote Address: Gearing Up for Global Markets: Opportunities for Fostering Innovation and Commercialisation of Water Technologies in the UK. UK Water Partnership Director, Mark Lane will be also chairing the following sessions during the conference: “Predicting and Mitigating the Consequences of Too Much Water”, “Predicting and Mitigating the Consequences of Too Little Water” and “The Commercialisation Conundrum.”

Now in its 6th year, the summit will address the need for greater collaboration between different stakeholders in developing a more holistic approach to water management, innovation and financing. 250 global water leaders will gather in London to evaluate current technologies and approaches for transforming waste streams into value streams through effective water re-use and resource recovery, investigate how to build resilience to climate change, while also exploring how data-driven efficiencies can free up capital for investment in new infrastructure.
