Water Research with Quality – our Quality Policy
Against the background of crucial challenges and future issues around climate change, water crises, digitalisation, sector coupling, urbanisation and SmartCity, the Kompetenzzentrum Wasser Berlin (KWB) develops new knowledge through dedicated and practical research.
Our work is: scientifically profound, inventive, sometimes uncomfortable and hard to underestimate in its relevance and urgency.
For 20 years, the KWB has been actively building a comprehensive network and working closely and productively with numerous national and international partners from academia, business and government. We take a leading role in the networks of the water sector, but also shape and engage far beyond.
We connect loose ends and link key players, stakeholders and organisations for the benefit of all. With our extensive expertise and creative ideas, we foster lively exchange and innovative change.
KWB’s work is highly relevant. Therefore, we share our knowledge with our diverse stakeholders as well as with a broad interested public. The knowledge we share is highly influential and promotes informed decisions across a broad spectrum of society. In this way, we generate sustainable positive changes. Our knowledge also flows into the development of practical services and innovative products.
