Governor Announces Water Partnership With IBM Ireland
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has announced a water research partnership with IBM as he kicks off a European trade mission in Ireland.
Sandoval announced Monday that the Nevada Center of Excellence and IBM are planning to collaborate on water quality management systems.
Dublin is the headquarters for water research for IBM's Smarter Cities initiative, which aims to help cities improve their operations with new technology.
The Center of Excellence helps match water researchers in Nevada with businesses that can use their expertise.
Sandoval said the partnership will strengthen the work Nevada is doing to address water security, and will help turn the research into a business opportunity.
The governor and a delegation of more than 60 people also plan to make stops in England, Poland, Germany and Italy.
