The UB Water Research Institute is an interdisciplinary research structure that aims to increase the effectiveness and permanence of collaboration between research groups that study topics related to water, its management, uses and quality.
The Institute’s main objectives are as follows:
Foster the consolidation of multidisciplinary teams within the Institute that can provide rapid technological solutions for specific environmental issues, particularly those related to water.
Collaborate actively in the technology transfer of knowledge attained through research, development and innovation undertaken with companies in the water sector.
Collaborate in the development of the European Research Area through participation in European research projects, the incorporation of the Institute in recognised research centres that can link the planned European networks, and participation in assessment and other processes promoted by the European Union and other administrations.
Increase and facilitate the mobility of Institute researchers and technicians and consolidate staffing and maintenance of the existing research infrastructure.
