Krinova is a member of Water Supply and Sanitation Technology Platform (WssTP). The Platform was initiated by the European Commission in 2004 for Research and Technology Development in the water industry and was transformed into an independent legal entity under Belgian Law in 2007.
The European water sector needs to develop ‘a curiosity for innovation’. The water industry is too slow in studying and eventually adopting new technologies. To remain in the forefront of this competitive business, innovation skills are essential. The sector must learn to innovate and should enhance its capacity to cope with economical, demographic, behavioral and climatic changes. WssTP addresses these needs by bringing together the leading actors of the water sector: multinational corporations; universities and research institutes; utilities (public and private); the supply chain and SMEs; and large industrial and agricultural water users, enabling a strong cooperation along the entire value chain and thus, fostering ‘innovation’ within all its facets.
