Marie Curie Initial Training Network
EDA-EMERGE is a 4 year Marie Curie Initial Training Network focused on producing young scientists with the interdisciplinary skills required to meet the major challenges in the monitoring, assessment and management of toxic pollution in EU river basins.
Managing the effects of multiple stressors on aquatic ecosystems under water scarcity
Globaqua -Managing the effects of multiple stressors on aquatic ecosystems under water scarcity- determines the relevance of the scarcity of water and its interaction with other disturbing elements on the functioning of ecosystems. The shortage is structural in nature, especially important in semiarid regions such as the Mediterranean basin. Also in other European regions, such as East Germany, western Poland and England, demand exceeds water availability and water scarcity has become a major management problem. The project will determine the importance of stress factors such as organic and inorganic pollution, geomorphological changes, changes in land use, water extraction, and the presence of invasive species and pathogens on the operation on aquatic ecosystems .
Joint Danube Survey 3
The Joint Danube Survey 3 -JDS3-, is the world’s biggest river research expedition of its kind in 2013, the UN International Year of Water Cooperation. JDS3 catalyzes international cooperation from all 14 of the main Danube Basin countries and the European Commission. The JDS is carried out every six years – JDS1 was in 2001 and JDS2 in 2007. JDS3 has been organized by the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River.
Managing Aquatic ecosystems and water resources
MARS -Managing Aquatic ecosystems and water resources under mutltiple stress- is a research project supporting European policies, such as the Water Framework Directive, and the Blueprint to Safeguard Europe’s Water Resources.
Assessing and predicting effects on water quantity and quality in Iberian rivers caused by global change
SCARCE is a multipurpose project that aims to describe and predict the relevance of global change impacts on water availability, water quality and ecosystem services in Mediterranean river basins of the Iberian Peninsula, as well as their impacts on the human society and economy.
Cutting-Edge Approaches for Pollution Assessment in Cities
CAPACITIE is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network, funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme. The Network includes 12 PhD projects. Each of the projects is related to addressing a variety of issues linked to pollution monitoring in cities. The PhD projects span several disciplines related to the monitoring of pollutants and the development of new technologies for pollution monitoring.
