The AgroParisTech “SUEZ – General Management of Urban Water and Sanitation Services” Chair contributes to research actions
For the dissemination of knowledge, operational practices, and management needed to improve access to water and sanitation in urban or surrounding areas.
The Chair activities related to research
The Chair supports research programmes aimed at developing access to drinking water and sanitation by improving service management, in particular by analysing economic, political, institutional and managerial conditions, as well as by analysing the governance framework promoting sustainable improvement in access to water and sanitation in the target countries.
The research programme is built and developed under the guidance of a scientific council, it supports work (projects, doctorates and Master’s or Engineer’s theses) and organises scientific meetings.
A meeting place between operational and researchers
The objective of these Rendez-Vous, a one-day event in a “seminar” format, is to confront the results of research in areas related to the management and governance issues of urban water and sanitation utilities, with feedback from the services in charge.
The participants are researchers, head of services, or heads of authorities in charge. They welcome an audience of researchers and professionals from the sector.

Proposals and calls for projects
The Chair dedicates funds to the development of research programs on water or sanitation with two main missions:
- Support the arts
- Organizing scientific events
Researchers can conduct a literature review that outlines: the research questions explored, the methodologies used, the main results, and the areas explored. A typology of the treated cases will be expected in order to guide possible future investigations. Researchers can help organize scientific events related to the Chair’s Scientific Council.
