MARsolutions, TWIs and modelling

This EIP Water AG 128 MARtoMARket side event on "MARsolutions, TWIs and modelling" is to discuss and disseminate to Actors and SMEs the achievements of FP7 MARSOL (http://www.marsol.eu/ ) and the H2020 PIANO ( http://project-piano.net/ ), FREEWAT (http://www.freewat.eu/ ) and AquaNES (www.aquanes.eu ) projects.

The main objective of EIP Water AG 128 MARtoMARket ( https://www.eip-water.eu/MAR_Solutions ) , the EU FP7 MARSOL and H2020 AquaNES projects is to demonstrate that Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) is a sound, safe and sustainable strategy that can be applied with great confidence.

With this we aim to stimulate the use of reclaimed water and other alternative water sources in MAR to optimize Water Resources Management (WRM) through storage of excess water to be recovered in times of shortage. Besides MARSOL project that developed MAR Demo Sites in countries around the Mediterranean (e.g. Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Malta, Israel), in H2020 PIANO project we assessed relevant European Technological Water Innovations (TWI) regarding the thematic Water for Agriculture, Water for Urban and Industrial Supply, River Basin Management and Flood Control, and Water for Energy, and in H2020 FREEWAT project we developed and disseminated to Actors and SMEs Modelling tools.

So, in this EIP Water MARtoMARket side event we intend to discuss the next steps, including the legal ones, to further bring those EU MAR achievements and TWIs to the market, via Actors and SMEs, not only in Europe and China but also to disseminate them Worldwide, for climate variability preparedness, aiming scientific based drought mitigation and flood control.
