Barriers to Innovation in the Water Sector: Output from the Project Dissemination Conference, DTI Conference Centre December 2006
The report contains the proceedings and output from a conference to discuss the findings of the UKWIR Barriers to Innovation project report 06/RG/10/1. The original work was carried out by the Policy Research in Engineering, Science and Technology centre (PREST) at the University of Manchester. The purpose of the conference was to review the findings of the PREST study and agree joint actions.
Representatives of stakeholders including Ofwat, water companies and the supply chain each provided a perspective on the research and alignment of action was explored through facilitated group working. Delegates concluded that there was a need to bring all stakeholders and policy makers together to agree the long term strategic goals for the sector to which innovation could contribute. This should be done as quickly as possible to ensure that such goals and their implications were included in the PR09 business planning cycle.
