Joint "Water For Africa" session at the EBC VII - ISEB 2018

25-28 June 2018 in Chania, Crete

VicInAqua joined its sister projects and the further Horizon 2020 project AfriAlliance in a common Water for Africa event organised in the frame of the combined EBC-VII European Bioremediation Conference and ISEB-2018 Conference of the International Society of Environmental Biotechnology. VicInAqua and its sister projects – DAFNE, FLOWERED, MADFORWATER, SafeWaterAfrica and WATERSPOUTT – are financed by the European Union’s research and innovation programme Horizon 2020 under the same topic as VicInAqua, WATER-5c-2015 Development of water supply and sanitation technology, systems and tools, and/or methodologies. Together with AfriAlliance, they address water and climate-change related challenges in Africa and propose solutions which can be replicated.

The Water for Africa event included a scientific session showcasing the first results of our projects and an exhibition booth with video and poster presentations. The joint event was also a perfect occasion for the project consortia to exchange experience and discuss further synergies and potential events to attend together as a Water for Africa cluster.

The conferences themselves brought together scientists, engineers and other environmental professionals to present their findings and discuss future trends, directions and new challenges for the restoration of contaminated sites and marine environments as well as on resource preservation through recycling and bio-based reclamation.
