RESILIENT WATER INNOVATION FOR A SMART ECONOMY (REWAISE)
The main objective of this project is to create a new “smart water ecosystem”, integrating an intelligent digital framework for decentralized water services and decision making, involving all relevant stakeholders to embrace the true value of water, reducing freshwater and energy use, and recovering nutrients and materials – resulting in a carbon-free, sustainable hydrological cycle, in line with the concept of a resilient circular economy.
REWAISE reveals the full value of water for Europe, considering 3 key components of the economic and societal value generated by integral water cycles: (i) Value in Water; (ii) Value from Water; (iii) Value through water.
