A team of researchers from UCAM (Fundación Universitaria San Antonio, Murcia, Spain) and NOVA FCT (Universidade Nova de Lisboa – Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Portugal) presented the Ecosens Aquamonitrix project at the Side Meetings of the EU Water Conference.

The European Innovation Partnership on Water – EIP Water in short – is an initiative within the EU 2020 Innovation Union. The EIP Water facilitates the development of innovative solutions to address major European and global water challenges. At the same time, the EIP Water supports the creation of market opportunities for these innovations, both inside and outside of Europe.

The EU Water Innovation Conference 2019 (EUWIC) was held on December 12, in Zaragoza, Spain.

A side meeting open to the public took place on 11 December. In this meeting, researchers from UCAM and NOVA had the opportunity to present the LIFE Ecosens Aquamonitrix project to the many attendees who were interested in it.

Dr. Nuria Vela de Oro from UCAM made the presentation of the project and the actions that are being carried out in different WWTP plants.

Dr. Claudia Galinha from NOVA FCT detailed the tasks of analytical modelling of the system as well as the results obtained so far.

Profitable contacts were established with different private companies and Universities interested in the project. These contacts will be maintained over time to keep them updated on the progress made.
