The +ADD team are continuing to support the Northumbrian Water Innovation Festival in its 3rd year.

In the past we have delivered competitions, investment clinics, design sprints, STEAM activities and even supported recruitment for the first festival Hackathon.

At the festival we have facilitated programmes with teenagers, built award winning APP’s, facilitated sprints on small pipe leakage leading to new ‘real world’ products, explored Digital Twins, hosted investment panels and more.

The Sensor futures …‘Daily Dash’

A sensor technology conceived at a sprint on reducing leakage in 2017 has now been developed and is in trial with NWG. This year we are running a daily dash on sensor futures in the water industry and supporting Northern Gas Networks in their innovation activities at the Festival.

The water industry is transforming with visibility of networks and operations having impacts across the industry. From field operations to improving efficiency and water quality management, sensor deployments are on the rise.

There are a number of applications where despite demand for change and fresh thinking, new practical devices are not forthcoming. Market growth is constrained by high maintenance, high cost and delicate nature of some offers in the marketplace. There are other undiscovered applications of sensors technologies that could be developed from other industries and domains.

Join +ADD and NWG for an exciting day of collaborative opportunity exploration and discovery as we attempt to define and prioritise opportunities, build consortia and establish initiative concepts in the Water utilities sector with associates and participation from diverse industries.

There are limited places for the ‘Daily Dash’ on sensor futures
