Working with The/Nudge Institute, we jointly launched The/Nudge Ashirvad Water Challenge in 2022, backed by the Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India.

The aim was to fast-track the development of highly innovative solutions, at scale, to boost access to clean drinking water in India.

The Challenge has proved to be a great catalyst for innovation, initially attracting 140 applicants bringing some brilliant, inventive ideas to our notice.

This year, we were delighted to announce the ultimate winner and runner-up of the challenge with the first and second prizes going to very worthy winners.

SmartTerra’s platform uses AI to detect leaks and is already deployed in five Indian states, helping to save an estimated five million litres of water a month.

Solinas Integrity’s robots have identified over 40 contamination points in water networks, saving some 600,000 litres of water daily.

Our partnership with The/Nudge Institute has been so successful to date that we have agreed to extend our relationship to raise the profile of water innovation in tackling India’s huge challenges in this area over the next 10 to 15 years.

Together, we plan to convene a Water Security Council creating a fast-growing ecosystem of leading thinkers, policymakers, and relevant public and private organisations to discuss and quickly commission research into future solutions.

Aliaxis is committed to being an active participant in the Council, providing thought leadership and insights from our own research and development endeavours.
