The coordinators of the projects FRAME, METAWATER, MOTREM, PERSIST, PROMOTE, StARE and TRACE will present their consortium of partners, programmed activities and expected results.

The seven projects, which represent a research investment of more than 9 M €, will produce new scientific and technological knowledge on the effect of emerging freshwater contaminants on human health, develop more efficient solutions to manage these substances, as well as assess their behavior in the aquatic environment. Representatives of the Pilot Call funding organizations will take part in the event which is a useful opportunity to enlarge cooperation on water research and innovation in Europe.
