Volunteers needed, RFPs coming in September.
USA: The Water Research Foundation (WRF) will soon post Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and is seeking volunteers for 22 new research projects funded through WRF’s Research Priority Program.
This strategic research program enables WRF to address broadly relevant subscriber issues, challenges, and opportunities with targeted research. The project concepts have been prioritized, approved, and funded by our Board-appointed Research Advisory Council.
The diverse research projects listed below will benefit all areas of the One Water cycle – drinking water, wastewater, stormwater, and recycled water – in an integrated fashion. Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for these projects will be posted in late September. Additional information on project objectives can be found here.
We encourage utilities to participate in these new research projects through the Utility Participation in Research (UPIR) Process. Utilities can serve as a test facility, provide samples, respond to surveys, loan equipment, or share staff expertise on research projects of interest. The 2022 UPIR application deadline for the funded projects is September 22.
Additionally, subject matter experts are urged to volunteer to serve on Project Advisory Committees (PACs) that will oversee each funded project. The 2022 PAC application deadline for the funded projects is July 11.
If you have any questions about these projects or the Research Priority Program, please contact John Albert, WRF Chief Research Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
