On the 11 November 2020, CREW hosted a webinar that brought together academics from the
James Hutton Institute (Hutton) and the University of Stirling (UoS). The teams discussed how the
digital revolution is transforming water research and how, with transformation, comes tremendous
opportunities for the water industry, regulators and practitioners. In a series of 5 minute spark talks
the research teams shared exciting developments in digital water research.
Scotland boasts a hugely varied coastline and a rich offering of inland waters in both rural and urban settings which host an amazing array of riches, come in all shapes and sizes, and are greatly valued and cherished by communities and visitors alike. To mark the Year of Coasts and Waters, scientists of Scotland’s Centre of Expertise for Waters (CREW), the James Hutton Institute and the Dee Catchment Partnership embarked on a catchment triathlon of the River Dee, travelling its 88-mile length and capturing their amazing adventure on a short film.
