Our projects

Sweden Water Research conducts research into water and develops new, effective solutions to meet the future challenges facing the water services industry.

We create, run, participate in and initiate projects that seek out suitable partnerships, with the ultimate aim of increasing knowledge of successful methods for the development and climate change adaptation of the cities of the future. Projects within Sweden Water Research are run in close collaboration with the owner municipalities and will, in either the short or the long term, benefit day-to-day operations.

ISWIM – Innovative stormwater impact mitigation

With urbanization and more intense rainfall the demands on the systems that manage stormwater increases. Additionally, stormwater contains various pollutants. Today, stormwater is often discharged into lakes, rivers, and the sea with little or inadequate treatment. Treatment technologies need to be developed to meet the current and future requirements for stormwater quality, resource management, and the potential for on-site stormwater use in properties.

Sustainable Pricing of Water

The technology for a more circular use of water exists, but we need new business models and changed behavior to make it possible on a larger scale. This project identifies challenges related to legislation, collaboration among different stakeholders, and the need to increase awareness of the challenges in the water industry.

Adaptive urban landscape

The project aims to collect and analyze different types of urban landscapes which are capable to adapt to climate change. The project concentrates on urban landscape and the opportunities it offers to cities in overcoming the water challenges. The focus is gaining more knowledge on design based techniques to make the cities more sustainable and resilient towards climate changes and the consequences.
