  • Benefits of Joining - Influence

    • Work directly with government departments to facilitate faster take-up of innovation and greater commercialisation both here and overseas. Partnership working means an open dialogue with officials and Ministers. You will be helping to shape the government’s priorities for research, innovation and capability in water and the linked interactions with investments in, for example, food, energy and cities.
    • Access insights and networks not otherwise enjoyed: for businesses and other users, it will give better access to science information and capability; for the academic community, it will give access to a wide end-user community which will help accelerate uptake and impact of research.
    • Be part of a 'collective voice' which is UK-wide and up to now has been absent.
    • Help to 'shape the debate' in partnership within the wider water-dependent community.

    This will be via involvement in activities and events run by the partnership, consultations and informal interactions with members.

  • Benefits of Joining - Visibility

    Supporting the partnership will help you:

    • Raise your organisation’s profile.
    • Develop new collaborations.

    This will be via presence on the website, facilities register, newsletter features, logo in UK Water Partnership literature, and engagement in events

  • Benefits of Joining - Delivery

    • Supporting the partnership will bring opportunities to play an active part in ‘research to market' processes and products.

    This will be via membership of the Leadership Council or participation in partnership Delivery Groups (e.g. Digital Water, Flood Resilience, Accelerator).
