Global Water Tech Hub Alliance

Accelerating the application of innovative water technologies around the world

About us

Established in September 2018, the Global Water Tech Hub Alliance was set up to foster international collaboration between regional hubs of water technology innovation. It is an open platform that helps match specific water challenges with solutions from around the world. The alliance works in two directions: supporting locally developed innovations in reaching out to foreign markets; and helping those seeking solutions to tap into a global pool of innovative technologies.

“We believe that a hub is not something you necessarily build, it’s something you find. It’s got to be organic. For us in Milwaukee we’ve been involved in water for many decades, tied to the brewery industry. Developing over the last ten years, we now have 225 water companies in our region, multiple universities doing research moving towards commercialisation and very good utilities open to pilots. From a cluster standpoint, you have to have those components together, as part of your DNA. As an organisation, what we do is match and connect people.”
“All of us know that one of the main areas for growth is wastewater reuse. It doesn’t matter if it’s a wet country in the north of Europe, or a desert country in the Middle East – there’s a lot of overlap and a lot of development to be done together. It’s not just in the Netherlands but hubs from all over the world.”
‘You can only be a strong hub if you are well connected to the rest of the world’
“Obviously, the driving idea behind all this is our core business, and that’s about speeding up the process of allowing locally developed innovations the opportunity to reach an international audience as quickly as possible.”
