WRF seeks pre-proposals for high-priority utility research

  • WRF seeks pre-proposals for high-priority utility research

About the entity

The Water Research Foundation (WRF)
The Water Research Foundation (WRF) is the leading research organization advancing the science of all water to meet the evolving needs of its subscribers and the water sector


The Water Research Foundation (WRF) is now accepting pre-proposals for its matching research program, the Tailored Collaboration Program. The Tailored Collaboration Program provides an opportunity for WRF subscribers to partner with WRF on projects that address issues of interest to a significant subgroup of subscribers. The projects will focus on various high-priority One Water research topics, including disinfection in distribution systems, emerging contaminants, spectral imaging of algal blooms, potable reuse, source water quality, and more. Through this program, WRF subscribers can receive up to $150,000 in matching funds for their projects.

“The Tailored Collaboration Program is a wonderful way for subscribers to leverage their funds,” said Dr. Kenan Ozekin, WRF Research Unit Leader. “It also helps utilities meet their individual research needs to enhance the key water services they provide to their customers.”

The program utilizes a competitive, two-step application process. Pre-proposals are currently being accepted and must be sponsored by a WRF subscribing utility. WRF’s Tailored Collaboration Review Committee will select a short list of applicants to submit full proposals. Applications are reviewed based on topic breadth and applicability, originality, technical approach, budget, management plan, and qualifications of key personnel. Pre-proposals are due by 5:00 PM ET on June 3, 2024.
