EU-WATERRES project kicks off aiming to promote coordinated management and integrated protection of transboundary groundwater by creating a geoinformation platform.
The “EU-integrated management system of cross-border groundwater resources and anthropogenic hazards” project (No. 2018-1-0137) with the acronym EU-WATERRES has been officially launched on September 1, 2020 under the leadership of Polish Geological Institute – National Geological Institute (PGI-NRI).
All together nine partners from five countries (Poland, Norway, Latvia, Estonia, and Ukraine) have joined their forces to improve the management of transboundary groundwater resources in two geographical regions: Baltic and Eastern Europe. The project will create integrated information and research platform to support coordinated management and integrated protection of common groundwater resources. The overall awareness of groundwater resources protection will be increased during variety of public events organized for stakeholders to tackle each specific project target group.
Project consortia consist of nine partners from five countries:
- Polish Geological Institute – National Geological Institute (PGI-NRI)
- Geological Survey of Norway (NGU)
- Geological Survey of Estonia (GSE)
- Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Centre (LEGMC)
- University of Latvia (UL)
- Intergraph Poland Ltd. (Intergraph)
- Institute of Geology and Geochemistry of Combustible Minerals of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (IGGCM)
- Subsidiary enterprise “Zahidukrgeologiya” (ZUG) (Ukraine)
- State Enterprise “Ukrainian Geological Company” (Ukraine)
