Access to interdisciplinary and applied frontier research such as ours is of acute importance to the water sector globally.
For water and allied industries, there are multiple and complex challenges of maintaining services under conditions of economic stress, population growth, demographic change, urbanisation and climate change, whilst continuing to meet consumer expectations.
water@leeds helps to develop innovative approaches for water-related applications. Tools and models can be designed in conjunction with partners in industry or academia for a specific purpose or arise as outputs from primary research – often leading to commercialisation opportunities.
Who we work with. We work with national and international industrial, government, charity and academic bodies.
As world leaders in many areas of water innovation, we are very keen to work with partners to maximise the impact of our work and make a real difference to people’s lives.
Andrew Walker, Catchment Manager:
one of the key successes of the partnership we have with Leeds is the people: they are good, enthusiastic professional people.

Tim Harper, founder of G20:
Water@leeds is a big interdisciplinary centre with over 170 scientists working on all aspects of water use and treatment and that allows us to have a good interface with the water industry and make sure we are solving water industry problems.
