Watermining

WATERMINING IS A EUROPEAN UNION PROGRAM AIMING TO PROMOTE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EUROPEAN DIRECTIVES FOR THE WATER RESOURCES AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY.

The growing demand for water and its wasteful use by the people is exacerbating the pressure on water resources, not only in Greece but also at a global level. This phenomenon urges us to adopt new policies for sustainable development.

The Watermining program is aiming to showcase and promote innovative solutions for the management of water resources at a higher scale, as well as the recovery of value-added resources extracted (mined) from alternative water resources (watermining). This project consists of a systemic approach to ecological innovation that aims to create interconnections between different sectors, value chains, natural resources, as well as to promote the adoption of similar societal values.

In this program, SciCo will contribute to the shaping of the ecological awareness of citizens and stakeholders and will strengthen their trust in water services, through their active participation in specially designed initiatives.

Watermining is funded by the European Union (call: SC5-02-2019).
