2017 Water JPI Exploratory Workshop (2-3/11/2017 - Dublin)

 

The Water JPI held the second Exploratory Workshop on the 2nd – 3rd of November in Dublin. The workshop was focused on the Water JPI Strategic & Research Innovation Agenda Theme 1 – Improving Ecosystem Sustainability and Human Well-being.

The aim of the workshop was to further discuss and develop the RDI needs under the Water JPI SRIA Theme 1. Outputs from this workshop will inform the upcoming SRIA update. Theme 1 of the Water JPI Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda is relevant to the Research Agenda of the BiodivERsA initiative, and therefore BiodivERsA were represented by a Speaker and funded project presentations.

MOTREM PROJECT FINAL WORKSHOP


On 23-24 November 2017, a two-day Workshop was hosted by MOTREM Project and REMTAVARES Network jointly. The event was organized by Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC), IMDEA and Universidad de Alcalá and sponsored by AQUALIA and BRUKER.
The event entitled “Workshop on Technologies for Monitoring and Treatment of Contaminants of Emerging Concern” (http://www.motrem.eu/workshop) took place at URJC campus in Móstoles (Madrid, Spain) with more than 80 attendees and 28 speakers from 4 different nations (Spain, Italy, Finland and Germany).
In this edition, the yearly Workshop organized by REMTAVARES to disseminate their latest results on micropollutants treatment, has included several research works in the frame of the collaborative international consortium WATERJPI2013 – MOTREM of the Water Challenges for a Changing World Joint Programming Initiative (Water JPI) Pilot Call (http://www.waterjpi.eu/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=182&Itemid=701).


Additionally, inside this Workshop, on 24th November a “Training Module on analysis of contaminants of emerging concern” was performed in the facilities of BRUKER at URJC Campus. It consisted of a technical and practical session to introduce the techniques applied to emerging pollutants analysis.
The event, apart from showing the latest results on emerging contaminants treatment and monitoring, served as a meeting point for networking with different European specialists on the topic.
