Sustainable and integrated urban water system management (SANITAS)

Description:

SANITAS was created to meet the deficiencies in human resources in European Urban Water System (UWS) management, the need for applications of technology and sustainability through the development of an integrated technology, knowledge and action base. SANITAS aimed at addressing the critical lack of trained professionals at a time when they are most needed, and when multidisciplinary skills are emerging as a key training requirement. A next-generation of integrated UWS management professionals was created by providing a Europe–wide training in the technical and complementary skills they require. The emphasis was on innovation, not just in the technical training provided that significantly expands knowledge beyond the state–of–the–art, but in the training methodologies, the applications, the implementation strategy and the advisory oversight of the Consortium. Innovation at all levels is essential for Europe to embrace the responsibilities and opportunities for global leadership in this sector.
