Two leading water sector organisations have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to enhance collaboration around innovation and market trends.

Technology market intelligence company BlueTech Research and the Water Environment Federation (WEF) aim to identify multiple opportunities to combine expertise and meet shared goals for the water industry.

A key component of this initiative will be a visiting scientist fellowship programme which will see BlueTech water technology market analysts working closely with WEF team members on a number of specific joint initiatives. It is expected that this will drive a cross-pollination of knowledge and sharing of information.

BlueTech recently supported WEF’s Intensification of Resource Recovery (IR2) Forum and is partnering the technical organisation in the Innovation Pavilion at WEFTEC. The company expects to work closely with WEF to develop innovation-related programming at other global events and help disseminate findings to WEF members and BlueTech clients.
