Berlin Centre of Competence for Water

Research Centre for Applied Water Research and Knowledge Transfer

Our statutory mandate is the promotion of science, research and development in the water sector. All our research projects dealing with intelligent water management focus on applicable results.  We are dedicated to keep cities like Berlin livable also in the future.
To meet our goals we engage in networks to exchange between professional actors in the national and international water sector. We bring Berlin topics into the networks and integrate international discussions in the Berlin water community. We develop research projects by crosslinking future topics like digitization, resource efficiency, energy and climate resilience with the traditional fields of the urban water cycle such as groundwater, water/wastewater technology, sewer management and surface water protection. In close cooperation with our national and international partners from science, industry and administration, we carry out the projects and release the results to the public. Our public relation provides up-to-date information on research trends and developments around the water topic.

The Kompetenzzentrum Wasser Berlin (KWB) is a non-profit PLC founded in 2001 based in Berlin. Shareholders are the Berliner Wasserbetriebe and the Technologiestiftung Berlin.
