What is LIFT?

The Leaders Innovation Forum for Technology (LIFT) is a multi-pronged initiative undertaken by WE&RF and WEF to help bring new water technology to the field quickly and efficiently. 
Overall, LIFT includes the following components:

  • Technology Evaluations – Facility and industry end users share the cost of conducting demonstrations to accelerate adoption of new technologies (WE&RF Lead)
  • People and Policy – Benchmarking how individual utilities accomplish research and development and identification of resources and policies needed to implement effective R&D (WEF Lead)
  • Communication – Training, education, and outreach (WEF Lead)
  • Informal Forum for R&D  – Managers and individuals responsible for technology identification and deployment share experiences, activities, and interests (Facility/Industry Lead)
