Our Research Strategy


Water is vital to our communities, businesses and the environment. As UKWIR, we focus on developing research and guidance with others to deliver benefits across the water sector.



We are committed to a collaborative approach to research which enables us to make a difference in the water sector. We are proud of the impact we have had so far, and we are looking forward to driving positive change through research in collaboration with you.

This strategy sets out our key focus areas for the future - our seven themes, the outcomes we are aiming for by 2030 and how we aim to deliver this work. We are keen to collaborate with you to deliver research that will help address the sector’s long-term challenges.
