What our members say
Technology has a vital role to play in security and resilience of our water systems – both in cities and the wider environment. Working in partnership can help accelerate innovation in the water sector, thereby helping industry and society through the provision of new thinking, processes and products. Venturi was borne out of this vision of collaboration and open innovation from Arup and WRc with the aim to accelerate the adoption of innovative technologies in the water sector.
