Abstract:

The overall aim of the REWATERGY Innovative Training Network, aligned to the current initiatives of the European Commission in the water-energy nexus, is to guarantee the competivity of the water industrial sector by the development of a tailored integrated Industrial European Doctorate programme for the provision of a generation of highly skilled scientists and engineers co-trained by industry and World-leading research institutions, capable of developing fundamental understanding and technologies in the field and its implementation in the European market. Three research objectives set the foundation of this ambitious programme: (i) enhance the energy recovery from wastewater streams inspired by the circular economy concept, (ii) improve the energy efficiency of water disinfection and removal of contaminants of emerging concern, and (iii)increase the resilience of distributed household safe drinking water systems addressing potential health and safety challenges. The programme is particularly designed to cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit by the collaborative design, development and manufacturing of new prototypes aligned with the three research objectives. This training concept will have a long term impact by providing a stream of highly trained innovative scientists and engineers able to communicate ideas and to develop creative solutions for the adoption of novel technologies in the market.
