PROJECT NAME: Η2020-SC5-WATER-5-2015: Combined use of advanced oxidation technologies for cost-effective, sustainable water treatment and recycling.
PRESENTATION OF THE ASSOCIATION: PRAXI is a team of researchers from Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV), the Federation of Industries of Northern Greece (FING) and the Foundation for Research&Technology- Hellas (FORTH).
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT: A research team from a Greek Research Centre is preparing a project proposal on the application of advanced oxidation technologies for the treatment of polluted water matrices for irrigation purposes (crop production) in arid and semi-arid areas suffering from pure water shortage. The team is looking for partners (academic, policy institutions, stakeholders, private companies) from non-EU Mediterranean countries andAfrica, able to assess risk management on water supply and sanitation.
OBJECTIVES: The goal of the project is the development of a pilot facility for the cost-effective and sustainable decontamination of water caused by multiple toxic contaminants (e.g. viruses, bacteria, heavy metals, organic species, pesticides, etc). The final step will be the use of the decontaminated water for the irrigation of thee land belonging to small communities with limited access to pure water sources.
PARTNER SEARCHED: The Greek research team is seeking for the following partners from non-EU Mediterranean countries and Africa:
1. Research organizations (universities or research centers) that would be interested in generating the knowledge related to water/wastewater management and treatment as well as crop farming in terms of sustainable agriculture and food security.
2. An enterprise dealing with water/wastewater processing facilities and crop farming
3. Water supply and sanitation policy regulators in local authorities that would be able to enhance the assessment and provide information related to local socio-economic conditions.
FIELD OF ACTIVITY: Strengthening international R&I cooperation in the field of water.
DEADLINE FOR DE PARTNER SEARCH: 15/09/2014.
DEADLINE FOR THE SUBMISSION OF THE PROJECT: 16/10/2014.
