UK Water Partnership launches facilities register to accelerate innovation
The UK Water Partnership is pleased to announce the launch of a new publicly available and searchable register of testing and demonstration facilities, which will benefit water technology developers and researchers.
The Tapping the Potential report identified a clear need for researchers and developers to test new water technologies and processes in facilities that represent realistic deployment situations. There is already a wealth of research and testing facilities spread across the UK, yet it has been difficult to locate information about such facilities.
Funded by Scottish Government’s Hydro Nation Water Innovation Service and the Natural Environment Research Council, this facilities register allows technology developers and researchers to easily search and identify facilities that best meet their needs and to contact the owners and operators for access. This will accelerate the route to market and abort unnecessary expenditure in replicating test facilities that already exist.
