The aim of the link is to develop a transatlantic community of internationally connected STREAM and ReNUWIt graduates and scientists who will be well equipped to meet the demands of the global water industry in the 21st Century.
The link started in October 2013 and runs for three years. Students and staff from the ReNUWIt programme will participate in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Stream Challenge Weeks.
Stream Research Engineers wishing to apply for funding to visit the USA will find an application form on the Stream-ER part of this website.

Other updates on exchanges and collaboration will appear on this page as the relationship between the two centres develops.
Stream is the Industrial Doctoral Centre (IDC) for the Water Sector funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and companies who sponsor research projects.
The Stream programme is delivered by five UK academic centres of excellence in water science and engineering in the UK. Coordinated by Cranfield University and including Imperial College London and the universities of Sheffield, Newcastle, and Exeter, the programme enables talented researchers to develop their skills and careers, while obtaining an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) or PhD degree.
An EngD is a four year research degree awarded for industrially relevant research. The degree provides a more vocationally oriented approach to obtaining a doctorate in engineering commensurate with that of a PhD.
