Ofwat Innovation Fund proposals


In September 2020, the water industry launched its UK water innovation strategy. This was collectively developed by all 19 water companies to give a single and comprehensive overview of the sector’s mission to drive transformational change between now and 2050. The seven themes identified by the strategy reflected many of Anglian Water’s current and future challenges and we’re pleased that our Shop Window priorities align with thinking across the sector as well as our own regional challenges.

Part of the overall approach includes a £200 million innovation competition fund to encourage innovation to transform water and wastewater services. This is being delivered using two types of innovation competition.

The Water Breakthrough Challenge (WBC)
Innovation in Water Challenge (IWC)

The exact format of the submissions has not been confirmed yet but this is Anglian Water’s open door to approach us with collaborative proposals.
