The European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme and the Government of India have decided to co-fund seven outstanding projects to co-create, co-design and co-develop innovative low-cost technologies for tackling India’s water and sanitation. These projects have been working jointly for the past year and a half to address comprehensively water pollution challenges.
On the 7th June 2023, India-H2O presented at a joint webinar with six other EU-India Water projects (Pani Water, Lotus, Pavitra Ganga, Pavitr, Spring and Saraswati) during the European Green Week 2023 online conference.
The webinar started with a keynote presentation from Anshuman, director at The Energy and Resources Institute in India and project co-coordinator of Pavitra Ganga. The theme of his presentation was 'Enhancing stakeholders' capacities and skills to facilitate zero water pollution in India'.
The keynote was followed by presentations of all India-EU Water projects. After these presentations, a panel discussion took place with all project representatives and moderated by Dr. Giulio Pattanaro from European Research Executive Agency (REA). Paul Campling, project coordinator of Pavitra Ganga brought a wrap up of project presentations with an overview of highlights and take-home messages.
