Innovation Demonstration for a Competitive and Innovative European Water Reuse Sector


OCCC, CREAF, IPE, EURECAT,  several universities and a lot of private industries and public institutions, which act as partners or stakeholders

Description of the project:

The ability of Europe’s communities to respond to increasing water stress by taking advantage of water reuse opportunities is restricted by low public confidence in solutions, inconsistent approaches to evaluating costs and benefits of reuse schemes, and poor coordination of the professionals and organisations who design, implement and manage them.

The DEMOWARE initiative is an FP7 EU research project which aims to rectify these shortcomings by executing a highly collaborative programme of demonstration and exploitation, using nine existing and one greenfield site to stimulate innovation and improve cohesion within the evolving European water reuse sector. The project is guided by SME & industry priorities and has two central ambitions; to enhance the availability and reliability of innovative water reuse solutions, and to create a unified professional identity for the European Water Reuse sector.
