Smart Specialisation Clusters

The South Australian water industry has a number of areas where it has excelled and is now one of the global leaders. Some of these areas have been identified and specialisation groups have been formed to foster the continued leadership of the technologies and the companies, government departments and research & training institutions that drive them forward.

The WIA facilitates two globally leading smart specialisation groups, MAR Hub and WaRDA, cluster groups who hold expertise in managed aquifer recharge and wastewater for regional and decentralised applications.
