WASSERMed (Water Availability and Security in Southern EuRope and the Mediterranean www.wassermed.eu) is a European Commission Seventh Framework Program (EC FP7) funded interdisciplinary collaborative project that draws together experts from diverse backgrounds including water systems, agriculture, climate change analysis and social studies

DelPHE: Capacity Building for Urban Water Demand Management (2007 - 2010)

The overall aim of the project was to develop a research base on aspects related to urban water demand management and enhancing capacity at institutional and national level through structured knowledge transfer and provision of pilot scale demonstration sites for selected water demand management options in developing countries.

Aquastress (2005 - 2009)

Mitigation of Water Stress through new Approaches to Integrating Management, Technical, Economic and Institutional Instruments

Integrated concepts for reuse of upgraded wastewater AQUAREC (2003-2006)

Wastewater reuse presents a feasible solution to the growing pressure on Europe's water resources. However, wastewater reuse implementation faces obstacles that include insufficient public acceptance, technical, economic and hygienic risks and further uncertainties caused by a lack of awareness, accepted standards, guidelines and uniform European legislation.

New approaches to adaptive water management under uncertainty - NeWater (2005-2009)

The central tenet of the NeWater project is a transition from currently prevailing regimes of river basin water management into more adaptive regimes in the future. This transition calls for a highly integrated water resources management concept

AQUATOR® is a commercial software for developing and running simulation models of natural rivers, water resources and water supply systems, using different operational rules, constraints and priorities

Time-Geographical Approaches to emergence and sustainable societies (TiGrESS) (2003-2005)

The TiGrESS project will evaluate the utility of Time-Geographical methods in increasing our understanding of the relationships between environmental change and social-economic driving factors

Development Of Optimised Conjunctive Control Rules For A System Of Water Supply Sources (1997-1998)

Control rules have been used in the United Kingdom for more than 50 years to reduce operating costs by controlling the overdrawing and pumped refill of reservoirs. However, for over 25 years some water companies within the UK have been integrating their sources into resource zones so there has been a need to produce conjunctive control rules applying to a whole system
