Innovation Series: Future Thinking Through A Digital Lens
Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, virtual reality, Big Data; SA Water are joining RAA to co-host an innovation series event on how the future will be shaped by a digital lens.
Led by Steven Smith and Andrew Stevens, you will be taken on a journey across the digital megatrends that are shaping our lives, how we view and respond to current and future challenges, and the new ways of thinking required to operate in a complex environment.
The Digital Age is fundamentally changing societies, economies and the way we do business.

Inbound Philippines Delegation
In early May 2017, the WIA supported a group from the Philippines visiting South Australia to learn more about our water capabilities. With a busy itinerary covering ASR sites, research, and engineering projects across greater Adelaide, we were able to demonstrate our expertise.
South Australia was identified as a key location for a benchmarking study tour on MAR due to our leading expertise and knowledge. A small group from the College of Engineering and Agro-Industrial Technology at the University of the Philippines visited Adelaide from 1st – 4th May. The tour was organised by renowned scientist Peter Dillon and hosted by the Water Industry Alliance.
Thanks to all involved who gave their time, shared knowledge, and made the visit productive and enjoyable for our guests.

Smart Specialisation Clusters
The South Australian water industry has a number of areas where it has excelled and is now one of the global leaders. Some of these areas have been identified and specialisation groups have been formed to foster the continued leadership of the technologies and the companies, government departments and research & training institutions that drive them forward.
The WIA facilitates two globally leading smart specialisation groups, MAR Hub and WaRDA, cluster groups who hold expertise in managed aquifer recharge and wastewater for regional and decentralised applications.
