Our range of services is as broad as the challenges we work on. FiW is organised in four departments: Environmental Process and Energy Technology, Water Management, International Cooperation, and Central Services, each of which is managed by a department head.

We provide our services in research & development and consulting & transfer in 10 specialist areas, which span from classical sanitary environmental engineering to water management to interfaces with neighbouring disciplines to cover all competences needed in order to address the current challenges of the water sector.

The products of our work are new approaches to solutions, feasibility studies and recommendations for action, as well as product development and process optimisation along the "technology readiness level" from the laboratory and prototypes to market maturity in large-scale implementations. Coming from the application, we initiate and coordinate project developments, moderate dialogues with actors and stakeholders, and develop customised solutions in international cooperation with partners from emerging and developing countries.
