The mission of the Nireas-International Water Research Center is:
- Development of cutting-edge water technologies
- Contribution to policy development
- Dissemination of knowledge concerning water science and engineering in layman form to the wider public
Nireas-IWRC offers a platform not just for more effective technologies but for an entirely new generation of functionality for sustainable management of water resources, harnessing the synergies of integrated interdisciplinary research on water quality, quantity, and management and by linking previously stand-alone content through a single knowledge repository.
Equally important, Nireas-IWRC generates a responsive environment for technology-enhanced research to motivate, engage and inspire citizens, and one that will be embedded directly in the social web. The acquired knowledge and know-how are transmitted internationally by publications, lectures, teaching, and consulting to the private and public sector.
