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.


Looking for synergies with sister projects and beyond!

Together with VicInAqua, further projects received funding from the European Union’s research and innovation programme Horizon 2020 under the same topic WATER-5c-2015 - Development of water supply and sanitation technology, systems and tools, and/or methodologies.

As sister projects having a common goal of boosting sustainable water resources management, we decided to start sharing experience and knowledge between our consortium teams and to discuss possible synergies to maximize the impact and dissemination potential of our technologies and solutions. This is achieved for example via parallel communication, mutual invitations to project events and joint organization of or participation in further relevant events.

We are also working on cooperation with further Horizon 2020 projects fitting our objectives and activities, such as the Coordination and support action AfriAlliance – Africa-EU Innovation Alliance for Water and Climate, funded under the close topic WATER-5b-2015 - A coordination platform and grant agreement number (GA No.) 689162. The AfriAlliance project aims to better prepare Africa for future climate change challenges by having African and European stakeholders work together in the areas of water innovation, research, policy, and capacity development.

We are all looking forward to great developments and activities together!
