Hans Jensen - UKWIR

The UK Water Industry faces and range of critical challenges going forward. Whilst many of these relate to the regulatory cycle that help govern the industry at present, many are longer term in nature, and will need strategic research programmes to better understand the big questions and how to address long term challenges. Hans will take the audience through the thinking behind these big questions and how the industry is addressing these challenges.
