The Northumbrian Water Innovation Festival is in its second year is a truly unique event, taking problems  and applying design thinking techniques to try to solve them in five action packed days.

Once again the focus on innovation will be mashed up with the feeling of a summer festival featuring a Marquee village and fun events every evening to engage various groups in the North East of England.

Paul Sutherland, MD of +ADD said:

We are delighted to be supporting the Festival again this year having been involved in various aspects in the inaugural event. The festival is an important expression of change in the Water industry and generates real solutions.

Last year the sprint we facilitated on solving leakage generated several invested projects including the development of a to sensor technology which is going to market in 2018. Further we raised sponsorship for an APP development for WaterAID that went on to in a national award!
