eWater congratulates all those involved in the bid for the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (The CRCWSC) for passing the first hurdle on the road to becoming a CRC.

The CRC was amongst 10 applicants invited forward this week to the interview stage in December.

CRCWSC aims to address four key themes – Society, Future Technologies, Water Sensitive Urbanism and Adoption Pathways. This research will be driven by researchers at three research hubs – The University of Queensland, Monash University and The University of Western Australia. It plans to build on existing research efforts, particularly the Cities as Water Supply Catchments research program. If successful, the multi-centre multidisciplinary team will be supported by expertise in planning and design from AECOM and statutory planning and legal expertise from Maddocks.
 
eWater provided its tools and services to the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities with the intention of incorporating their research into our existing tools.

Further details are available on the CRC website.
