Objectives and Focus
In many parts of the world there is a lack of sustainable access to high-quality drinking water and adequate sanitation services. In many European countries, a high supply standard has been achieved. However, particularly in some Southern and Eastern European countries, prevailing conditions are making it difficult to improve water and sanitation services.
This is, where the Muelheim Water Award focuses on. It prizes oustanding projects in applied research and/or the implementation of innovative concepts that contribute to an improvement of water management in Europe. This also includes engineering, planning and consulting services.
|The award is not focused on basic research, but on solutions with a high degree of innovation. The award is also intended to consolidate the interest of the academic and research community in the water and wastewater industry and secure the location of Muelheim an der Ruhr as an international competence centre for water and sanitation.|
