1. What water issues are both UK businesses and researchers highlighting and what is the role for the UK Water Research and Innovation Partnership in tackling these? The five minute film above hears from contributors to the RCUK Water Showcase held on 27th March 2013 at the Wellcome Collection in London.

    The main aim of this LWEC- supported event was to develop new collaborations between researchers and research-users, especially industry, in the area of water. Users were able to explain their particular short-term and long-term needs and water researchers were able to pitch their research. Networking after each of the topic sessions – in climate change and environment, infrastructure and technology, and water use, allowed new connections to be made.

    Speakers included Sir John Beddington, the Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor, and Judith Batchelar, Sainsbury’s Head of Brand. The audience filled the venue to capacity, with more than 120 delegates attending from academia and representatives from private, public and third sector organisations.

  2. Getting a joined-up approach to joined-up problems is one of the key messages that the new Living With Environmental Change (LWEC) Task Force on Health and Wellbeing is taking on board.
    The importance of reaching the most vulnerable during extreme weather, adapting hospitals, health centres and care homes to climate change and getting the best possible scientific evidence to inform policy were just some of the issues raised at a health challenge workshop on climate change risk assessment held during LWEC's first Assembly.

    The new LWEC Health and Well-being task force will build on this work to define some important actions partners can take together to improve policy and practice.

    In the above video, Virginia Murray, from the Health Protection Agency gives us a glimpse of what came out of the workshop she led at the LWEC Assembly.
