The Water Hub – Ripple 2019
The Water Hub: RIPPLE 2019 “Creating ideas, opportunities and impact” March 21st 2019 at Centre for Life, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne The opportunity… The UK government estimates that there are opportunities to expand the current UK global market share in water technology innovation from 3% to at least 10% by 2030, representing an increase in value from £1.5 billion to £8.8 billion per year.  Realising this opportunity depends on greater collaboration between industry, academia, and government; a focus on commercial opportunities and customer needs; and access to testing and validation facilities and mechanisms to bring this all together. There are at least six recognised water innovation hubs worldwide but the UK is not among them. If properly organised, the UK has at least an equivalent, if not a greater, innovative capability – our vision is for North East to be recognised among these. Our first annual network event is for businesses, creative thinkers, and practitioners; for those who want to create an impact in the water and environment sector and share our ambition for putting the North East at the heart of the global market in water technology innovation. The day will provide industry and government insight, cutting-edge innovation, real life examples and inspiring talks from those within and influencing the water and environment sector in the North East and beyond. It will bring together industry leaders, start-ups, engineers and investors from across the region to come together and find solutions to today’s water resource and environmental challenges.
