KWR water

Bridging Science to Practice is KWRs motto. Our researchers work at the interface of science, business and society. Their strength lies in their translation of scientific knowledge into applicable, practical solutions for end-users in the Dutch and international water sector. We have built a solid reputation as top-level innovation accelerators and international network builders, and increasingly play a coordinating role in national and international collaborations. Our shareholders are the ten Dutch water companies and the Belgian De Watergroep. Water is the basis of life. It is essential for nature, people, food production and economic development. In our water-wise world research program we work on the optimal organization and management of the whole water cycle, with a circular economy as a key driver and the UNs Sustainable Development Goals in mind.
