WWT Water Industry Technology Innovation Conference
The 2018 WWT Water Industry Technology Innovation Conference brings you the chance to work towards an innovative future for the sector, with a series of mini design sprints focused on five key areas, including: leakage, customer experience, sludge & energy, water resources & drought resilience, and partnership working.
Innovation is key for the UK water industry to survive and thrive in the face of growing regulatory pressures and customer expectations. These challenges are well known: improving asset health and longevity; ensuring water and environmental quality are at the highest possible standards; keeping the water flowing to customers; managing totex; improving customer engagement; and many more.
Key to a successful, sustainable, and low-cost water and wastewater service relies on breaking down resistance to technological innovation and new ways of working. Regulation and company culture must adapt to encourage risk-taking, allow for failure, and drive long-term benefits for the customer.
Building on the success of the last five years, the 2018 WWT Water Industry Technology Innovation Conference brings you the chance to work towards an innovative future for the sector, with a series of mini design sprints focused on five key areas, including: leakage, customer experience, sludge & energy, water resources & drought resilience, and partnership working.
