WATERPROTECT “Innovative tools enabling drinking WATER PROTECTion in rural and urban environments”
The Horizon 2020 project WaterProtect will develop new solutions and tools in 7 Action labs where water pollution (nutrients and/or pesticides) from intensive agriculture may affect the quality of the water for drinking water production. This project is setting up ‘action labs’ in seven different countries: the Bollaertbeek (Belgium), Wexford County (Ireland), Llobregat (Spain), Jebjerg (Denmark), Gowiecina (Poland), Val Tidone (Italy), Maramures (Romania).
The WaterProtect Consortium aims at a strong long term multiplier effect for the lessons and successful practices of the Action labs and other good examples into new policy and governance instruments around Europe. Specific attention is paid to communication and dissemination since it is vital for the success of the project.
