The EU, through its research and innovation programme ‘Horizon 2020‘ and the Government of India (DST and DBT) is investing seven projects, among which, INDIA H2O is part.
The key focus areas of these projects are: improving the quality of drinking water, waste water management and real time monitoring and control systems are, which have been selected through a competitive peer-reviewed process. In total, 130 entities will be part of these seven projects, ranging from universities, research labs, private sector and municipalities.
The cooperation of these projects will lead to increased scientific excellence while ensuring that at the end of the project, the technology can be deployed and be of benefit to the entire Indian population
The other India-EU H2020 water cooperation projects are:
