From the CEO: IWC moves to a new strategic home in 2018

To build on its reputation and world-class offerings in Integrated Water Management, the International WaterCentre is excited to announce that from January 2018 Griffith University will become the IWC’s new strategic home.

The International WaterCentre (IWC) is pleased to announce a strengthened strategic alliance with Griffith University from 2018 that will allow both organisations to more fully integrate their water science and management offerings. Griffith University is one of Australia’s leading research universities and a global leader for excellence in water, with water science and management identified as one of the university’s key areas of strategic investment.

The move will bolster the IWC’s existing relationships with Griffith networks and provide increased access to shared resources for partners, students and clients from some of the nation’s principal water institutions including the Australian Rivers Institute, the Cities Research Institute, the Sustainable Water Futures Programme, and more.

Joint Venture

The new arrangement will replace the International WaterCentre Joint Venture (IWC) that has been in place since 2005. The Joint Venture has successfully developed a strong presence in the water sector and has completed a number of applied research and capacity development projects since its establishment. The IWC will continue to operate as the International WaterCentre Pty Ltd, an independent entity of Griffith University, maintaining its current company structure - flexible and focused on collaboration across a large network of universities, businesses and other organisations globally. 

IWC Master of Integrated Water Management

The University of Queensland and Griffith University have together developed and delivered the Master of Integrated Water Management (MIWM) over the last decade through the IWC. From 2018, Griffith University Nathan Campus will become the new delivery centre for the MIWM. International MIWM student applications and enrolments will operate in the same way they have in the past, i.e. via the University of Queensland. Following the close of enrolments for 2018 entry into the MIWM, all subsequent international applications and enrolments will be via Griffith University. Applications and enrolments for domestic students will be taken only at Griffith University for entry into the program in  2018, beginning with scholarship applications opening on Monday 21 August 2017 and course enrolments opening at Griffith from 23 October 2017. The program will continue to be managed by the IWC and the University of Queensland will continue to play a role in delivery of courses and other activities of the centre.
