Cetaqua Barcelona is a foundation that was set up in 2007 by Aigües de Barcelona, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and the Spanish National Research Council. It is a model of public-private collaboration that was created to ensure the sustainability and efficiency of the water cycle while taking local needs into account. This model has become consolidated as a benchmark in the application of academic knowledge to water and to the environment by creating products and services that benefit society.
