Sustainable Water Treatment and Nutrient Reuse Options

Main objectives

SuWaNu will support the cooperation and integration between five research-driven clusters (Germany, Spain, Malta, Greece and Bulgaria) in order to improve research and technological development and to encourage real implementation of technological solutions as well as to increase investments at regional level. Furthermore the development of new research-driven clusters with the focus on wastewater treatment and reuse application to crops will be enforced by expanding cluster formation to other European regions and will be a crucial support for the market penetration of technological solutions at international level.

With a special focus on small- and medium-sized companies, the SuWaNu project consortium will develop strategies to enhance the innovative capabilities on resource efficiency, agricultural and environmental sector, improving cooperation on the regional and European level, integrating research-driven clusters across Europe in order to promote regional economic development and worldwide competitiveness of European companies.

Through SuWaNu project, the five participating regional clusters will be coordinated in order to develop a Joint Action Plan (JAP) at European level to drive economic development through research and technological development activities in the selected topics of wastewater reuse and agriculture sector.
