Innovation and research agenda

In 2018, we established a Vitens-wide, demand-driven research programme, our Innovation & Research Agenda . The programme focuses on our main knowledge issues. The horizon initially set when the programme commenced was five years, while we prioritised issues based on urgency. The agenda is subdivided into eight themes. Four of them correspond to Vitens’ core processes:

  • Distribution
  • Treatment
  • Abstraction
  • Client

In addition, we have designated four process-transcending themes:

  • Safe and healthy drinking water
  • Hydroinformatics
  • Integral asset management
  • Circular economy and environment
