Because of the rapid growth of knowledge occurring within a variety of collaborations, water organisations need a party to support them in translating this knowledge into the societal context. KWR assists in the search for unique answers to ensure the process of steering and implementing innovations runs smoothly. Since every player in the water sector is affected by these processes and related knowledge questions, joint research into knowledge coproduction delivers great added value.
Knowledge production between science, government and business
Knowledge and innovation form the basis for good and successful water management. New knowledge is increasingly being developed, exchanged and used in networks and collaborations between science, government and business. This development raises all sorts of questions within water organisations: how, for example, can scientific knowledge be translated so that society can draw maximum benefit from it?
The joint implementation and transfer of innovations to practice creates a need within organisations to designate a whole range of matters, from the processes involved to the expectations of end-users. They need a party to support them in knowledge creation.
Knowledge creation and social network analysis
KWR applies its expertise in knowledge creation and social network analysis to support water sector organisations in meeting current and future knowledge challenges. We assist in the search for unique answers to ensure the process of steering and implementing innovations runs smoothly. Our network research focuses on having organisations develop their chances in the existing knowledge networks and implement them in practice.
Great added value from joint research
Organisations in the water sector today are increasingly working in collaborations, which usually involve more and more participants. They do this to increase their efficiency or because finding solutions alone to complex challenges no longer works. The collaborations operate in a variety of areas, focusing on knowledge development and innovation. Since every player in the water sector is affected by these processes and the related knowledge questions, joint research into coproduction delivers great added value.
