Building a water-smart economy and society
Description of call
"Building a water-smart economy and society"
Since the demand for water in our society is increasing, there is a need to make alternative water resources available for different functions and multiple users. So far, innovations in this domain have been only carried out on a small scale. Therefore, actions under this call should demonstrate the feasibility of a 'water smart' economy and society in which all available water resources are managed in such a way as to avoid water scarcity and pollution, increase resilience to climate change, appropriately manage water-related risks, and ensure that all valuable substances that could be obtained from waste water treatment processes, or are embedded in used water streams, are recovered. Proposals should focus only on one of the following sub-topics:
  • a) Symbiosis between industry and water utilities
  • b) Large scale applications with multiple water users at various relevant scales
