FP4BATIW is a coordination and support action addressed to foster partnerships and networking for best available water treatment technologies implementation in the MPC region by promoting the interaction between highly qualified members, both from EU and MPC, of the knowledge value chain (KVC) on water treatment and corresponding stake holders community (national water agencies, municipalities, industrial waste water producers, entities managing business incubators, etc.). Such action will lead to new approaches, tools and innovation. Integrating sustainability aspects and allowing the collaboration between experienced and new teams for coaching and capacity building in cooperation. Such fostering activities will contribute to reduce the gap between research & innovation and the water treatment market enhancing synergies and allowing the concentration of efforts, know-how exchange, coownership and dialogue.
FP4BATIW will promote the employment of water treatment technologies pilot plant demonstrations and real case studies achieved under former or on-going EU-FP7 projects with MPC participation to substantiate pre-competitive research in the water sector in the region, with particular regard to develop innovative business models focused on generating water saving and multi-use solutions. In addition, the partnerships engaged by the members of FP4BATIW will emphasize on pre-competitive research efforts to develop innovative water treatment technologies that can be used for a wide range of costs, management systems, scales and technological advances in the MPC region.
