Sold out research and innovation conference exceeds expectations

February 14, 2019

Water Research Australia's research and innovation conference - Next Water - combined over 200 delegates from across the world to participate in lively and engaging discussions regarding the future of, and research opportunities in the water industry.

This year the annual event took a fresh approach to address what’s NOW and what’s NEXT, and saw attendance from utilities, researchers, health regulators, government, non-government organisations and consultants.

Over 60 top-class speakers from Australia and around the world shared their views on the biggest trends and challenges facing the water industry, including:

  • Climate Change;
  • Water and Wastewater Treatment;
  • Resource Recovery;
  • One Health;
  • Water Security;
  • Data Science; and,
  • Alternative Water Sources.

The event also incorporated WaterRA’s 10-year Anniversary Dinner, celebrating our journey from the CRC for Water Quality and Treatment to Water Quality Research Australia and then Water Research Australia.
