The Scottish Government is backing an 'innovation hub' for Scotland, delegates to WWT's Water Scotland 2013 conference heard yesterday. Speaking to more than 130 delegates gathered in Glasgow, deputy director of climate change & water industry, Bob Irvine said water was a "key component of a low carbon economy and growth of trade".

He said it would give the developers on the supply side opportunities to test their products to show they work in Scottish Water’s public supply system.

“You can get some kind of certification and take that to international markets,” he said.

Irvine said he thought the centre, which is part of the Scottish Government’s multifaceted vision for a Hydro Nation, would be up and running by the start of the next financial year. According to spokesperson for the Scottish Government, the location would not be at a single site, but would offer access and services at different sites.

Water Scotland 2013 was sponsored by Veolia Water.
