Linking research, technology, and innovation to industry needs

ICE (Innovation Commercialization Exchange) Institute is an initiative of The Water Council that aggregates, evaluates, and connects emerging technologies that address water issues across a wide range of industries including utilities, agriculture, and manufacturers.

WHAT ICE INSTITUTE DOES

  • Identifies member needs
  • Scouts technologies within federal and university labs, entrepreneurial efforts, and private R&D
  • Engages a multi-disciplinary group of industry and subject-matter experts to analyze accrued innovations
  • Populates a proprietary database with vetted technologies and detailed analyses to expedite the development of solutions to world water challenges
  • Provides a technology showcase and searchable database for members to identify and advance promising technologies that align with their goals
  • Serves as a synthesizer of technologies, matching promising technologies and emerging research among the member base

The time to prepare is now. In the United States, the concentration of industry and employment—paired with the regional challenges in water management, quality, and quantity—present an ever-increasing threat for industry. In fact, the estimated cost to business from 2011 to 2040 is projected to be $7.5 trillion in lost sales and $4.1 trillion in lost GDP.*
