Ask the Editor:

Professor Lluís Corominas, Editor of Water Practice & Technology



Why is Water Practice & Technology (WPT) important to the field?

WPT gives opportunity to both practitioners and researchers share their achievements in applied research, case-studies, etc. Some people are of the opinion that there is no sufficient transfer of knowledge from academia to industry, and WPT can bridge that gap and foster that transfer.

What ongoing/upcoming trend or development do you think will be a game changer for the field?

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations define targets for different goals, hence establishing priorities for both academics and practitioners. Besides ensuring clean water and sanitation, new practical developments in the water sector can help in designing more sustainable and resilient cities.

What do you think most makes WPT stand out from other water-focused journals?

Practitioners can share their experiences and knowledge, fostering the development of a vibrant innovation landscape that includes academia, the private sector and civil society. The WPT editorial board is sensitive to the needs and demands of authors and guide them to make sure excellent results are shared with the water sector.
