Concept |
VicInAqua is a medium-scale focused research project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 689427.
11 partners from 7 European and African countries aims at developing an integrated approach for water management by providing an integral, sustainable, innovative, cost effective and robust solution for water sanitation combined with the demand for clean water in aquaculture and irrigation in the Lake Victoria basin.


VicInAqua has a clear trans-disciplinary perspective involving new materials/membrane development, wastewater cleaning engineering processes, sensor technologies for remote water monitoring and renewable energy supply aspects.

The innovative core idea of VicInAqua is to develop, test and integrate novel technologies (e.g. self-cleaning membrane bio-reactor (MBR)) in a common system. VicInAqua main goal is to enable the supply of clean water to RAS and agriculture (water reuse) and this through a single solution water treatment (sanitation) of different wastewater streams (domestic waste, fish production and processing industry).
