VINNWATER Centre for Stormwater Management Solutions

Reference number
Coordinator Luleå tekniska universitet - Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser
Funding from Vinnova SEK 36 000 000
Project duration September 2017 - October 2022
Status Ongoing
Venture Competence centre

Purpose and goal

VINNWATER’s vision is to develop pioneering, research-based stormwater management knowledge and solutions to minimize pollution loads on receiving waters; minimize the risk for flooding in urban areas; and capture the opportunities that stormwater can offer.

Expected results and effects

The active research collaboration that will take place within VINNWATER will benefit the whole society. LTU will conduct excellent, needs-driven research, which will both attract and maintain Swedish R&D investments. As the research activities are based on companies’ and municipalities’ needs, these will get access to front-end knowledge for the development of goods and services. LTU will incorporate the new knowledge in courses, hence offering even more attractive academic education, which in the end will give companies and municipalities access to qualified employees.

Planned approach and implementation

The strategy for achieving VINNWATER´s vision is to bring partners from the whole value chain together, i.e. from end-users, researchers, manufacturers of stormwater management solutions, sewers, consultancies, to operations and maintenance. Stakeholders representing all these areas are represented within VINNWATER.
