EU Research on ICT and Water Efficiency
ICT4WATER is a hub of 15 sisters projects co-funded by the European Commission under the FP7 Programme Framework and the H2020 Programme Framework focused on two main topics: ICT and water.
Our main aim is to achieve an efficient water management through a series of advanced ICT solutions.
Due to growing population and economy, seasonal climatic conditions have changed, including extreme events as floods and droughts. This affects as a whole the availability of water resources at world level.
ICT and water efficiency is a key policy issue with potential for new research area that includes decision supporting system for the measurement of water quality and quantity including the recycling and water reuse processes.
This necessitates increased interoperability between water information systems at EU and national levels and efficiency of water resources management.
