EU-WATERRES project kicks off aiming to promote coordinated management and integrated protection of transboundary groundwater by creating a geoinformation platform.
The EU-WATERRES project (No. 2018-1-0137) has started its activities with an online kick-off event on October 26, 2020 organized by the lead partner – Polish Geological Institute – National Geological Institute (PGI-NRI).
The kick-off event already attracted more than 60 participants from five countries – Poland, Norway, Latvia, Estonia, and Ukraine. The event started with the presentation of project aims, planned activities and project consortia, and was closed with Q&A session to engage stakeholders in the project activities from the very beginning.
The aim of the project is to promote coordinated management and integrated protection of transboundary groundwater by creating a geoinformation platform. The project brings together nine partners from five countries (get to know our team here) which will jointly deliver various solutions to support coordinated management and integrated protection of common groundwater resources, as well as to increase the overall awareness of transboundary groundwater resource protection.
The project No.2018-1-0137 “EU-WATERRES: EU-integrated management system of cross-border groundwater resources and anthropogenic hazards” benefits from a € 2.447.761 grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Regional Cooperation.
