Catalysing Innovation in the Water Industry

The UKWP, Arup, Apsara Capital, and Twenty65 co-funded a study to identify whether the UK would benefit from a ‘Water Innovation Accelerator Programme’.

In summary, the process begun in early 2017 with a desktop study and 40 interviews throughout the water industry. Second phase looked at exploring a pilot phase. Through this process UKWP created a schematic for what this would look like, including potential partnerships.
