WRc manages a £1.5M per annum programme of collaborative
research in the water, wastewater and environment industry

topical problems through promoting innovation, sharing research
costs and leveraging budgets / experience.
In managing the Portfolio programme, WRc works with other
recognised experts and innovators to deliver the research.

The project needs / proposals are developed in consultation

The Portfolio programme provides an effective route for collaborative
research. In addition to WRc initiated projects, if you have
a project idea where we can help stimulate innovation, find
