Water is the foundation of society. It sustains life, fuels agriculture and food production, supports our economy, and is crucial to the natural environment.
How do we build resilience, efficiency and adaptability into our systems, networks and catchments to ensure we all receive clean water, sustainably, by the year 2065?
From 2016 to 2021, TWENTY65, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), worked in partnership across the water sector to tailor water systems so that they positively impact health, the environment, the economy and society.
This website provides detailed background to the project, its activities and outputs. You can also visit the legacy document [link to digital legacy when available] which brings together five years of multidisciplinary research, including the key lessons learnt and providing a future direction for the water sector in the United Kingdom.
