Networking

Consolidation of pre-existing collaborations between the beneficiaries of the network (research or industrial), in funded projects:

  • PHOTOMAT “Tunable materials: preparation, characterization and investigation of photocatalytic activity of new hibrid materials” – Project ID: 318899 – a FP7-PEOPLE project funded by the European Commission (2012-2015)
  • ENVIRONBOS “Isolation, Characterization and screening of environmental applications of Bio-Organic substances obtained from urban biomasses”- Project ID: 269128 – a FP7-PEOPLE project funded by the European Commission (2011-2014)
  • MAT4TREAT “Enhancing water quality by developing novel materials for organic pollutant removal in tertiary water treatments” – Project ID: 645551 – a H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange project (2015-2018)

Creation of significant new links with other EU projects related to AQUAlity:

  • ANSWER “ANtibioticS and mobile resistance elements in WastEwater Reuse applications: risks and innovative solutions” – Project ID: 675530 – a Marie Sklodowska-Curie European Training Networks project funded by the European Commission (2015-2019)
