The University of Queensland – Advanced Water Management Centre
The University of Queensland, through its Advanced Water Management Centre (AWMC), has over 15 years of experience in water research.
The Advanced Water Management Centre is a world leader in innovative water technology and management with leading expertise in education, research and consulting. The large majority of its funding is gained from competitive and collaborative sources, particularly from the Australian Research Council.
The Advanced Water Management Centre’s capacity was further enhanced in 2008 when Veolia Water Australia and WaterSecure, together with The University of Queensland, initiated a $2.5 million investment to establish a Water Recycling Research Program. The new program is believed to be the first of its kind in Australia and will consist of a team of researchers at the Advanced Water Management Centre and at EnTox (National Research Centre for Environmental Toxicology) at The University of Queensland.
