The Water Equipment and Policy Center (WEP)

is the research engine that drives innovation in North America's water industry. Located in Milwaukee, the crossroad of Wisconsin's water hub, WEP serves as a catalyst for synergizing the region's assets to create the next generation of products and processes and advance the water industry.

Achievements

During its first 7 years WEP generated nearly $9 million for fresh water technology and policy research.

To promote commercialization WEP researchers embraced rigorous project management practice and adopted NASA’s Technology Readiness Level (TRL) model.

As a result, WEP applied for 5 patents and members signed 12 licensing agreements.
