Subjects & projects
KWR’s foundation is the knowledge we develop on the basis of our leading, applied scientific research into the watercycle. We are experts in a wide range of specialist fields and we inspire the water sector to define its research issues and questions. Together, we build the knowledge needed to address complex water challenges.
We collaborate with water companies, universities and businesses, both in the Netherlands and internationally. In such a context, as a researcher, you’ll find it interesting to be a connecting link and to shape the development of knowledge.
Tools & Products
Together with the water sector, we have developed a solid knowledge base. We are building an international reference framework of successful tools and products. And we seek out partnerships with market players for the commercialisation of market-ready products.
