HYDROUSA is an EU Innovation project submitted and approved under call topic CIRC-02-2016-2017 (Water in the context of the circular economy) (Grant Agreement No. 776643)

The aim of the project is to counteract the annual summer-time water-shortages experienced in touristically active regions by the implementation of innovative nature-based systems, at the same time creating jobs and added economic value by merging the individual elements of the water-energy-nutrition-employment-nexus.
