Meet the Innovation Supplier Co-ordinator

Aoife is the person who receives the submissions on the WIN portal and steers the WIN review group meetings where the submissions are discussed and feedback is shared amongst various experts across the business. After the WIN review group meeting she captures all the feedback and contacts other experts in the business to understand if a solution is of interest and has potential value for the business. In Spring 2021 she completed her 12 week Short Term Work Placement and since August 2021 has been supporting the Water Innovation Network platform and the Innovation Engagement team in Anglian Water.
