We have been running our Research Programme since 1993, focused on the key themes and challenges faced by water companies in the UK and Ireland.  In that time we have successfully delivered around 1,500 projects. This work is collated under various Research Themes, providing quick access to past, present and future projects and their associated outcomes.
