WAVE – Strategic innovation initiative within the water sector

Hooray! An important and exciting news for water issues across all sectors - it's now confirmed that one of the five programs that received funding within Impact Innovation is Water for Vital Environments - WAVE.

WAVE aims to achieve a systemic transformation for the management of water resources and related infrastructure. The goal is a future where water is available in the right quantity and quality despite a changing climate. WAVE is led by RISE in collaboration with IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, Linköping Science Park, Lund University, Stockholm Environment Institute, and Svenskt Vatten.

Our three owners, NSVA, Sydvatten, and VA SYD, are coordinating their engagement in WAVE through us at Sweden Water Research, which enters as a strategic partner.

Impact Innovation is a major, strategic innovation initiative designed to accelerate the transition to a sustainable society. It is driven by the Swedish Energy Agency, Formas, and Vinnova.
