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.
On 26 February, the first round of the Innovation in Water Challenge (IWC) fund closed for entries led by Anglian Water and all other water companies. Whilst we are waiting on the outcome of the IWC round 1, Anglian Water wanted to provide the greatest opportunity to collaborate with our supply chain which is why we are seeking proposals for IWC round 2 through our WIN platform.
The deadline for proposals for IWC round 2 is Friday midday 06 August 2021.
