Through our 3 lines of research our centre is a benchmark for the application of scientific knowledge to the water cycle, especially in the field of wastewater treatment and recovery, at regional, national and European level.
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.
In Cetaqua Galicia we take part in R&D&I projects aimed at achieving transformative outcomes. These are some of them:
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.
In 2017, the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of the Spanish Government certified Cetaqua Galicia as a Technological Innovation Support Centre (CAIT), the first which focuses solely on water and the environment, and the only one in Santiago.
UNE 166002:2014 of the R&D&I management system.
Through the Joint Unit “Innovation Centre for Advanced Water Treatment Systems” (CIGAT), Cetaqua Galicia has been collaborating with Viaqua and the Galician Innovation Agency (GAIN) since 2015. As a team, we develop and transfer new technological solutions to the market that help transition from linear to circular economy models.
