Science Advisory Board

The ReNUWIt Engineering Research Center highly values the input of our Science Advisory Board members throughout the year. In addition to an Annual Meeting that takes place at one of the four partner universities, we are constantly seeking insights from the Board to improve our research efforts and the quality of these efforts, to find ways to increase our global impact, and to identify areas in need of improvement and/or refocusing.

At the 2016 Annual Meeting held the second week of May on the University California Berkeley campus, ReNUWIt teams presented a select number of projects for review. Board members provided thoughtful suggestions regarding the quality of science in our current research, possible ways to better integrate sub-projects into our core portfolio, and ways to model our future research such that adoption of new technologies and approaches for operating urban water systems will be viable.
