Global Innovation Partnership to Investigate, Restore and Protect the Urban Water Environment

Mission

In their rapid infrastructure expansion, emerging economies like India and Brazil are presented with golden opportunities to leapfrog beyond traditional water treatment models and install more sustainable technologies. A global partnership between world-leading researchers from Newcastle University, the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, the CSIR-National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (CSIR-NEERI), and the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD), will pool knowledge, skills and research facilities for the development of innovative methods to detect and monitor existing and emerging pollution threats to the urban water environment, and sustainable technologies to reduce the identified pollution releases and to remediate existing pollution deposits.
