Second ETV Innovation workshop from WRc
Water research company WRc is hosting a workshop on the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) scheme for innovative technologies. The event is WRc's second on ETV, which is an EU-run scheme to accelerate the uptake of innovative environmental technologies into the market.
WRc says that the problem at the moment is that many clever ideas that can benefit environment and health are not taken up because they are new and do not have a track record. Under ETV, claims on innovative environmental technologies can be verified – at the request of if the owner of the technology – by qualified third parties called Verification Bodies.
As an accredited Verification Body under the ETV programme, WRc is running its 2nd workshop on the 5 November 2013 at its office in Swindon. Attendance is free.
Mark Smith, managing director, WRc, said, “We are very proud to be the first UK ETV accredited organisation and believe the scheme has the potential to accelerate the uptake of innovative technologies to the sector. This workshop is an ideal opportunity to learn about ETV, what it means for your company and how you can take advantage of EU support funding to encourage the use of innovative technologies in the water sector.”
