REWAISE is one of five innovation projects supported by the Horizon 2020 framework program. The goal is to reduce the use of drinking water and use water in a smarter and more efficient way.
Sweden Water Research conducts research into water and develops new, effective solutions to meet the future challenges facing the water services industry.
We create, run, participate in and initiate projects that seek out suitable partnerships, with the ultimate aim of increasing knowledge of successful methods for the development and climate change adaptation of the cities of the future. Projects within Sweden Water Research are run in close collaboration with the owner municipalities and will, in either the short or the long term, benefit day-to-day operations.

Future City Water delivers state-of-the-art solutions that secure our most important commodity - drinking water. The smart drinking water systems of the future are automatically controlled to minimize leakage, ensure water quality and optimize water use throughout the supply chain, around the clock.
Water is a resource in a sustainable city and can create attractiveness and greenery. Right placed, green areas, vegetation and open streams take care of rain and relieve sewage systems. A pleasant and safe urban environment can be created in parallel with avoiding flooding and improving water quality by reducing emissions of poorly treated sewage.
The maintenance approach with underground pipes is often reactive and intervention takes often place after the pipe has failed. In the Pipestatus project we will develop methods for condition assessment for pipe inspections to help the pipe owners to be able to increase intervention before a pipe failure. None of the methods require interruption of supply or excavations. Non-dig methods and technical solutions are highly attractive for players both in Sweden and internationally. New solutions have therefore great market potential.
Open (blue-green) stormwater solutions get more common and are about to play a central role in the management of stormwater in Sweden and other countries in the world. However, there is a need for evaluation of existing systems and to find out what role the system plays in the overall management of the city's water. It is also considered to examine the importance of systems with regard to the quantity and quality of the stormwater that reaches the recipient.
