Catalan Water Research Institute research and innovation for the sustainable use of water

Webinars focusing on the circular solutions of HYDROUSA project in three Mediterranean regions.

Online Event

About this Event

How can we develop long term – low carbon solutions, to address water stress in the Mediterranean regions? How can we move towards a sustainable circular future?

As we kicked off the New Year, it’s time to have a deep dive into the HYDROUSA progress.

A series of webinars focusing on applications to each Mediterranean region will start in the beginning of March and continue through May.

HYDROUSA 2021 webinar series are designed by a community of water allies to introduce the mission towards a viable scenario of a circular economy. We address the challenges of water supply, wastewater and biodiversity loss – by extracting water from unconventional sources using state-of-the-art and nature-based technological innovations.

The online sessions include an introduction to the project of HYDROUSA, its theoretical approach, methodologies & actions, backed up by interactive slots with questions on the distinct on-site applications, & collective mapping of the webinar’s outcomes & future steps.
