Project: How to PROtect Water, Soil and Plants production all togethER

Acronym ProWsper (Reference Number: WaterJPI-JC-2016_16)
Duration 01/04/2017 - 30/03/2020
Project Topic The need for innovative strategies for water and soil protection that substitute the time-, energy- and resource-consuming remediation processes with other more efficient and environmentally-friendly is becoming urgent. In this respect, the interest of this project is to promote such solutions for public and private practitioners and to up-rise industrial competitiveness through economically sustainable technologies/products, in the Agriculture Field and indirectly in the Water Management aria. Therefore, this project practically develops protective composite layers (as end-products) with high efficiency towards pollution of underground water and soil, but without affecting the plants growth. ProWsper is an experimental and demonstrative research project conducted in partnership with four prestigious Institutions, from three European countries (Romania, France and Portugal) that face these common problems. In order to succeed, the implementation gap from Prototyping to Marketing and thereafter to practitioners will be narrowed by social/industrial awareness campaigns using various channels.
