The Department of Science and Technology (DST), in collaboration with the Water Research Commission (WRC), has established the Water Technologies Demonstration Programme to pull together the applied R&D and pre-commercialization stages of the water innovation continuum, facilitate high-level, collaborative technology demonstrators from the public and private sectors and create an enabling environment to accelerate water and sanitation technologies to the market.

VISION

To bridge the gap between water research and the market to achieve a connected water innovation system that delivers socio-economic benefits for South Africa.

MISSION

To facilitate high-level, collaborative technology demonstrators from both the public and private sectors to maximise the potential of the water innovation value chain.
