The Water Hub is a partnership between FWI, Stellenbosch Municipality and the Western Cape government, and is located at an abandoned water treatment facility in Franschhoek. Focused on research, demonstration, training and recreation, it is the first of its kind to demonstrate state-of-the-art techniques and technologies suitable for the African context. 

The partnership with FWI ensures a solid grounding in transdisciplinary collaboration with many initiatives already taking place. While the completion of the project vision is scoped to occur in 2022, the site is already a vibrant hub of participative research activities.
