Last Monday (3 Nov) I was briefly mentioned in a piece in The Guardian by Oliver Balch. The article was on ‘How business and academia could turn the tide on water scarcity‘ and looked at university-industry partnerships in the UK and Australia as a way to develop ‘innovative solutions to water scarcity problems‘.

Oliver had called me the week before about the UK water sector’s approach to university-industry links, and R&D in general, so it was great to see the piece published. Here’s Oliver’s take away points from our chat:

Overall it’s an interesting article – and it’s not hidden behind a paywall – so I’d highly recommend you pop over to The Guardian site to give the full piece a read.
