KWR (170 staff, based in the Netherlands) is a publicly owned research institute for the (urban) water cycle (www.kwrwater.nl). Building on 40 years of experience in the Dutch water sector, KWR has evolved into a prominent player in the European water research and innovation arena. We develop and unlock knowledge about the water cycle from water systems, technologies and water quality to governance. Our objective is to provide the water sector with the means to identify and effectively meet the challenges of our time: from climate change to the increasing amount of contaminants, and the growing pressure to use space intensively and for multiple purposes.
KWR has ample experience in European research and innovation projects, many of them as coordinator such as WEKNOW, MICRORISK, TECHNEAU, PREPARED, DEMEAU and SUBSOL. KWR is founding member of the European Water Platform WssTP (www.wsstp.eu), member of both the High Level Steering Group and Task Force of the EIP-Water and chair of ARC (a collaborative platform of leading applied water research institutes). Other EU-funded research projects that KWR is or has been involved in, are SCENES, MICRORISK, LEGIONELLOSIS, CPDW, TOXIC. SOCOPSE, TESTNET, ARTDEMO, TRUST, TAPES, Water4India, SmartWater4Europe, DEMOWARE, SOLUTIONS and DESSIN.
