Next week, Sweden Water Research will be taking over our Instagram account, so we took this opportunity to have a chat with Malin Nydesjö to find out more about who they are and what they do.
Hi Malin, what can you tell me about Sweden Water Research?
We’re a research company working with one of the most important things on earth: water. We started in 2014, when the municipal organisations NSVA, Sydvatten and VA SYD decided to merge their research and development activities into one research organisation. Our research focus is new, effective solutions to meet the future challenges facing the water services industry.
Can you give me an example of a typical project of yours?
Our projects are connected to the challenges and goals of our mother organizations. Some examples are securing the drinking water in a changing climate, reducing micropollutants in wastewater, and blue-green storm water solutions in the cities. Collaboration is a very important part of our work – we work with industry, municipalities, academia, cities and others.
Who are the people working at Sweden Water Research?
Today we have 15 PhD students, as well as senior researchers, project managers and administration staff.
What will you be showing us next week on Instagram?
We’ll give you a glimpse of our work, who we are and what we do. Hopefully you’ll learn a little bit more about water, what it is like being a PhD Student and all the nerdy (exciting and super interesting!) details within this field! 🙂
