KWR Watercycle Research Institute

Water and the water cycle – that is, all the ways in which people use water and return it to the global water system – are essential for all life on earth. Too much water, or too little water of the right quality, can have a drastic impact on people and the environment. We need top-quality, tailored knowledge to optimally organise and manage the water cycle, and thus allow our society to provide two basic needs in people’s lives: healthy and safe drinking water, in a (water) pollution-free environment.

KWR Watercycle Research Institute assists society in optimally organising and managing the water cycle by:

  • creating knowledge through top-quality research;
  • building bridges between science, business and society;
  • promoting societal innovation by applying the best knowledge available.
