Andrew Segrave is leading the research into scientific future exploration and strategy development at the KWR Watercycle Research Institute and among other things, is founder of the Dutch water sector’s platform for collective horizon scanning (www.dwsi.nl). He is fascinated by images of the future and how they influence behaviour and wrote his PhD thesis on temporal perspective and the ‘foreseeable future’; the horizon of time that people take into account in their daily decisions and actions. Andrew coordinates research into trends and upcoming opportunities for and threats to the Joint Water Sector Research Programme (BTO) for Dutch water companies, has experience in various European projects (e.g. SCENES, TRUST), and has worked a lot with e.g. the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). Andrew also has ten years of experience in applying methods for horizon scanning and strategic planning in practice and is often at the Waternet/AGV water board district’s strategic centre.
