AWA sets water innovation challenge


Monday, 23 March, 2015

The Australian Water Association has set the Australian Water Innovation Challenge: entrepreneurs and established companies have been challenged to enter their most innovative water technology solutions in this new competition.

“The Australian Water Association is looking for ideas that could potentially transform the sustainability of communities and businesses, both in Australia and around the world. AWA, and our 4500 members, understand that innovation and entrepreneurship are necessities for growth, and global growth is only achievable through preserving our most important resource - water,” said Jonathan McKeown, CEO of the Australian Water Association.

“We encourage start-ups through to well-established companies to get involved in our inaugural water innovation challenge. We are looking for ideas that can transfer across industries, countries and applications. No idea is too big or too small.”

The challenge winner will be announced at Ozwater’15. Prizes include:

  • a full-page editorial in the Australian Water Association Water Journal;
  • a tailored B2B program to introduce their innovation to potential users;
  • an exhibition space at the Australian Water Association Innovation Forum 2016;
  • an entry into the Australia Water Awards 2016;
  • a promotional campaign across the Australian water sector and Australian Water Association’s members.

The challenge was launched by the Australian Water Association (AWA) and YouNoodle, a global start-up competition platform.

Entries are being accepted until 8 May. To enter or find out more, visit
