Advocates for Water Science
Who We Are
Since 2013 the initiator has participated in the annual water conferences organized by Gerald Pollack (the conference series started in 2005). It is a gathering of water scientists curious to venture into the unknown properties of water. In those years, we experienced our own struggle in water science, to get it funded and accepted, and at the same time the inspiration we always had to continue to dive deeper into water science and water’s connection with literally all of life. We always enjoyed the mixed group of people with different backgrounds coming together (scientists, entrepreneurs, healthcare practitioners and more) and we felt the urge to bring into reality the full collective potential of this group to change the world.
Water touches every conventional scientific discipline, it therefore requires a multi-disciplinary approach. One cannot acquire expertise in all these disciplines, therefore collaboration is key. And since water touches even the unseen, a new science needs to develop.
The idea for the World Water Lab arose: a world wide connected lab consisting of scientists and labs sharing their expertise and resources to efficiently and effectively tackle the subject of Water; a strong outward message for water science, so that individual labs and scientists don’t need to stand the ‘test’ alone; solid science and quality marking for water solutions on the market; education for the general public; and a new scientific discipline.
To enhance, change and influence the future of water science, through world-wide scientific collaboration across all scientific fields and accelerate a scientific revolution across all the sciences.
To form a network of global scientists sharing expertise, equipment, and worldwide laboratory space to collaborate on scientific projects efficiently, cost-effectively, and with high-quality output.
