The following networks are presented by university in alphabetical order. If you know of a network that should be included, please use the facility in the right-hand column.
Centre for Water Systems - University of Exeter
The Centre for Water Systems (CWS) at the University of Exeter meets a real need for research into water systems engineering. Supporting, developing and operationalising sustainable water management is a key challenge for the future that is strongly addressed by the Centre’s activities.
Cranfield University - Water Sciences Institute
Without appropriate management, whether for municipal supply, agriculture, industry, community development or maintenance of a sustainable environment, we risk over-exploitation and contamination of our planet’s most precious resource.
UEA Water Security Research Centre - University of East Anglia
The UEA Water Security Research Centre interprets water security in a broad political ecology and political economy sense – understanding the diverse uses and benefits of water in international and community development, and in turn, recognising the multiple disciplines, drivers and constraints that guide and influence the management of water.
water@leeds - University of Leeds
water@leeds is the largest interdisciplinary centre for water research in the UK, encompassing expertise from across the physical, biological, chemical, social and economic sciences and engineering as well as the arts.
N8 Water Group - North of England
Northern England's eight research-intensive universities have formed a powerful alliance, known as The N8, to help northern businesses become more competitive by using the research excellence of the universities to innovate faster and take a larger share of growth markets.
Oxford Water - University of Oxford
Oxford Water is the University’s response to these challenges, building upon existing and emerging water science excellence. Oxford Water is a cross-divisional research network, harnessing Oxford University’s diverse strengths to address the challenge of managing water in a complex and uncertain world.
The Pennine Water Group - University of Sheffield
The Pennine Water Group (PWG) is an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded Platform Grant centre dedicated to research into water and wastewater.
Surrey Water Innovation Research & Learning (SWIRL) - University of Surrey
SWIRL seeks to support societal and environmental needs through a community of people engaged at the University of Surrey in water related innovation, research and learning.
Warwick Water - University of Warwick
Warwick Water undertakes research into aspects of water engineering, the environment and sustainability. The group focuses on identifying and quantifying the fate of soluble pollutants and contaminated fine sediments within rivers, urban drainage systems and the coastal environment.
