The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) and BlueTech Research (Cork, Ireland) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to enhance collaboration around innovation and market trends.

WEF and BlueTech will launch a visiting scientist fellowship program that pairs BlueTech’s water technology analysts with WEF staff on joint initiatives. Next year, WEF’s Water Science & Engineering Center plans to work with BlueTech to conduct an environmental scan of the water sector to identify popular topics and trends and determine how to best address them.

“Innovation and collaboration are two factors critical to the continued growth of the water sector,” said WEF Executive Director Eileen O’Neill. “Our work with BlueTech is done in this spirit, and we look forward to continued successes.”

BlueTech is a long-time WEF partner, having supported the Intensification of Resource Recovery Forum and Innovation Showcase and Pavilion at WEFTEC. Together, the organizations will identify opportunities to combine expertise, meet shared goals for the water sector, and co-develop programming at global events.
