Performing in-house research: Facilitating or conducting research with high impact value to integrate new concepts and appropriate technology, in-depth analysis of prevailing issues with research value and cost-efficient O&M with other routine procedures, which set the scenario to develop institutional goals.
Performing collaborative research: Bridging several parties, which include external stakeholders (Universities, NBRO/ IWMI/ JRDC/ DCNS etc.) as well as internal (RSC/ Projects/ Major Division of NWSDB etc.) to knowledge transfer and technical support where it needed for research.
Facilitation for research: Providing with laboratory facilities, technical support and previous research literature available in R&D for the ease of preceding the research.
Providing guidance for research: Pave the way to render a fruitful outcome of each research through sharing the resources and previous experiences, provide consultation and training for young researchers in NWSDB.
Conducting R&D symposium: R&D symposium is held annually to publish research outcomes, which are selected by the professional committee appointed by NWSDB. Both NWSDB employee and external researchers can publish in the symposium.
