Season's Greetings from WaterRA

December 17, 2021

On behalf of the Water Research Australia Board and staff I would like to wish you and your families a safe and enjoyable Christmas and New Year holiday season.

We thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to working with you in 2022 to continue delivering collaborative water research, innovation and capability building that supports healthy communities and a healthy planet.

Next year our focus will be on helping the water sector achieve greater collaboration and leveraging of their investment in R&D through implementing the Australian Urban Water Industry Research Priorities Agenda, launched last month. Jointly developed with WSAA, the Priorities ensure access to, and utilisation of the latest scientific evidence to better prepare for future challenges and drive innovation in the sector. It will also drive WaterRA’s future projects, some of which have already been initiated through our recent Horizon annual planning event.

Into the New Year there will also be many other opportunities for members to co-fund and co-deliver water solutions through high-impact collaborative research, which you can view here. Please also keep an eye on your inbox next month for the release of our annual events calendar.

The WaterRA Team will be taking a well-earned break over the holidays and the office will be closed from 12pm 24th December and will re-open on 3rd January 2021.

I hope that you too will be able to take some time-out to rest and recuperate after yet another very challenging year.


Best wishes,

Karen Rouse

Chief Executive Officer | Water Research Australia
