Reaching zero water pollution in India through low-cost innovative solutions

Reaching zero water pollution in India through low-cost innovative solutions

8 June 2021 10:00-12:00 CEST

The European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme and the Government of India have decided to co-fund seven outstanding projects to co-create, co-design and co-develop innovative low-cost technologies for tackling India’s water and sanitation. These projects have been working jointly for the past year and a half to address comprehensively water pollution challenges. 

This webinar is co-organised by LOTUS, PANIWATER, India-H2O, PAVITR, and Pavitra-Ganga, presenting how their solutions work and how the projects interact with each other to maximise their impact.

The webinar is a partner event of the EU Green Week 2021, focussing on zero water pollution.
