Our centre in Barcelona focuses on increasing resilience to climate change by incorporating circular economy models, using digitalisation as a transversal axis.
We apply artificial intelligence to make the water cycle more efficient and sustainable.
We develop solutions to transform treatment plants into biofactories: making them efficient facilities for obtaining water, energy and materials.
We create methodologies and systems to manage and improve water cycle infrastructures to cope with natural or man-made events.
We develop solutions that ensure sustainable development and people’s well-being.
We use artificial intelligence for water management. We estimate available water resources, water demand and water allocation impacts under high water stress scenarios.
Through R&D&I projects, we work toward transformative outcomes. These are some of them:
Computer vision for automated detection of anomalous events in water plants
Demonstration of battery metals recovery from primary and secondary resources through a sustainable processing methodology
Accelerating water intelligence on Europe’s coast through Living Labs.
The Board of Trustees is the main governing body. It defines strategy, annual plans and budgets, approves major projects and activities, and oversees financial management.
The Scientific-Technical Council is appointed by the Board of Trustees and acts as an advisory body. It advises the centre on research policies, offers technical assistance, and evaluates business requirements.
