The Water Collaborative Innovation Platform was showcased at The Water Council’s Water Summit 2014 in Milwaukee
The Water Council, the School of Freshwater Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the innovationExchange and inno360 have formed a partnership to expand Milwaukee’s global presence in water innovation and leadership. By harnessing the power of collaborative innovation technologies, together they will increase and improve public-private sector water-related collaborative research. This system links the knowledge economy with the innovation economy by providing an interface for academics, industry, investors and manufacturers.
The Water Collaborative Innovation Platform, showcased during The Water Council’s Water Summit 2014 in Milwaukee, is a Web-based search, innovation management and analytics tool that will enable water industry and academic researchers worldwide to conduct mining of water research information. The platform will access data from a large landscape of resources and increase the speed of information transfer—from weeks to hours—leading to increased research productivity.
