25 research and water industry entities working together to create a new “smart water ecosystem”; mobilising all relevant stakeholders so that society can embrace the true value of water; and reducing freshwater and energy use; resulting in a carbon-free, sustainable hydrological cycle to transition into a resilient circular economy.LEARN MORE
The CIRSEAU cluster consists of five sister projects (granted within the H2020 call topic CE-SC5-04-2019 “Building a water-smart economy and society”) demonstrating the feasibility of a water-smart economy and society. These five projects are B-WaterSmart, Wider Uptake, ULTIMATE, Water Mining and REWAISE.
