In the year 2000 I was appointed Scientific Director of IKT – Institute for Underground Infrastructure. IKT is based in Germany and a neutral, independent, non-profit research, testing and consulting institute. It works on questions of the construction of underground pipes and networks for gas, water and waste-water. As an independent and reliable partner for utilities, sewer system operators, water associations and industry the IKT offers highly specialized and cutting edge research and testing technologies in a practical, application-orientated manner.
The cooperation of water management and research is practice by IKT since its establishment in 1994. Well-known companies for water supply/distribution and sewerage are working on transfer between science, research and economy within the IKT supporting bodies.
