Aquawarn aims to develop a portable, deployable early warning pollution device using state-of-the-art microfluidic and detection technologies for water quality protection. This will provide affordable, real-time monitoring, improve the detection period of pollution incidents and if it is used as part of process control, it will help to reduce the occurrence of pollution incidents. This technology will be economically viable for widespread use.
The Aquawarn partners are from universities and companies located across Europe and collaborate throughout this two year project. The project started on the 1st of December 2013 and finished on the 30th of November 2015.
The research leading to Aquawarn results has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme managed by REA-Research Executive Agency under grant agreement n° FP7-SME-2013- 1-605937.
