PARTICIPATIONS AND COOPERATION

IoS cooperates with the Institute for Advanced Study of the Technical University of Munich

(TUM-IAS) which has been established to support inspiring basic research through interdisciplinary

initiatives. The institute brings together researchers from TUM with distinguished

scholars from around the world to jointly conduct fundamental research

(http://www.ias.tum.de/).

IoS belongs to the founding members of the European Water Partnership (EWP). The institution

aims to give water a common voice in Europe. Its members are committed to the

European Water Vision and will initiate, support and enforce all actions and projects that

will help to achieve the aims and goal of EWP (http://www.ewp.eu/).

IoS provides scientific advice to TECHNEAU (http://www.techneau.org), an integrated project

granted by the European Commission. The aim of the project is to further develop traditional

system and technological solutions for drinking water supply, and to cope with

present and future global threats and opportunities.

Further on, IoS provides advice to the EU integrated project Aquafit4Use

(http://www.aquafit4use.eu/) which aims at making industries more independent of the

supply of fresh drinking water for their production processes. Secondly, an important step

forward is being taken within the project in obtaining water qualities that are tailored to suit
