Eawag is the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology and is part of a domain, which includes a university in Zurich and one in Lausanne, the three independent research institutions of Empa, PSI and WSL. Firmly anchored in its home country of Switzerland, but with a global network, Eawag is concerned with concepts and technologies for dealing sustainably with water bodies and with water as a resource. In collaboration with universities, other research institutions, public bodies, industry and non-governmental organisations, Eawag works to harmonise ecological, economic and social interests in respect of water usage. The Institute thus serves as a bridge between the scientific world and the ‘real world’ and provides consultancy services based on the specialized knowledge of its employees.
