Wider uptake of water-smart solutions
WIDER UPTAKE aims to facilitate industrial symbiosis as a means to increase resource efficiency, limit emissions and develop sustainable business based on water-smart solutions.
WIDER UPTAKE's hypothesis is that the barriers to wider uptake of water-smart solutions are not only technological but also of organizational, regulatory, social and economic character. WIDER UPTAKE has a special focus on the interaction between these barriers.
WIDER UPTAKE involves demonstration cases in five countries: Norway, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Italy and Ghana.
WIDER UPTAKE will co-develop a roadmap for implementation of water-smart solutions that is made available in an open access Virtual Learning and Sharing Centre.
Coordinator Herman Helness explains the project in seven minutes
