Globally, building sustainable communities, industries and infrastructure will become more demanding. Therefore, the understanding of the movement, changing behaviour and influence of water in the natural and built environment is essential to our future well-being.

We can draw on our unique capabilities in science, technology and engineering to invest in knowledge to deliver insight and innovation. We harness research, intelligent data and the power of our collective expertise to design smarter, more resilient solutions to address future demands and opportunities in, on and near water.
