Groundwater is an essential element of the hydrological cycle. The scientific community establishes the need for improved knowledge of groundwater, the implementation of reliable monitoring networks and the involvement of the water administration and users in the sustainable management of groundwater.
The main objective of Aquifer is to capitalise, test, disseminate and transfer innovative practices for the preservation, monitoring and integrated management of aquifers that will help in making decisions on the management of groundwater resources, to improve technology transfer to local agents and to create new synergies and develop common tools in a context of scarce water resources and environmental threats.
This project will improve cooperation and technology transfer between universities, research centres and the business sector, fostering synergies and the development of new products and services.
