Sensors for Water Interest Group (SWIG)

BioApproaches SW LogoEnvironmental protection, water and waste treatment and process measurement are increasingly a multi-disciplinary activity.  SWIG organises a programme of one-day workshops where invited speakers and an enthusiastic audience can debate the practical applications and current challenges for measurement and control in water and wastewater. SWIG complements this programme with workshops on regulatory issues of relevance to its members.

SWIG workshops offer a cost effective way of keeping up to date and fostering collaboration between interested parties on sensor developments, new technologies and development in regulations and legislation that impact on environmental and process measurements.

SWIG also:

  • Provides a forum for manufacturers, end users and researchers in the sensor community to test new ideas, exchange views and network among themselves
  • Encourages collaborations between all parties interested in research, development and use of sensors for water quality and quantity measurements
  • Represents the UK waste treatment and water quality sensor community to regulatory authorities, the government, and European organisations

The SWIG website is a valuable resource for members. It contains information about SWIG’s activities, future and past workshops and events including many full presentations from those events, location maps and ‘hot links’ to other sites of interest.

Membership of SWIG is open to corporate organisations, academic institutions and individuals with an interest in the development or application of sensors for measurement and control of water quality and quantity.
