Heriot-Watt University’s Water Academy is a centre of expertise in Global Water Management research. It brings together leading experts who collaborate to stimulate pioneering and practical solutions to the challenges created by increasing pressure on the world’s water resources.
We work with partners in academia, industry and communities to address challenges arising in the water environment. Our work is focused on three main areas whereby we strive to:
- Produce internationally recognised, innovative water research
- Inspire our students with engaging, creative and research-led teaching
- Pro-actively engage with industry, government and communities to raise awareness and co-create solutions, technologies and tools.
We believe that by fostering excellence in all of our endeavors - in research, teaching and in our engagement with partners we can create positive, practical solutions and promote behaviors that make a meaningful contribution to advancing the field of water research and water management practices
