The Aquatuur project will officially launch on Monday, Sept. 11, with a conference for a wide audience. The Water Technology research group of HZ University of Applied Sciences is one of the partners.

The Interreg Flanders-Netherlands project Aquatuur aims to increase freshwater availability and create a robust water system. The partners want to achieve this with green-blue solutions. At the same time, these must provide the necessary functions and services.

The project focuses on three solutions: water storage, purification and enhancement. Researchers such as Mireille Martens, Emma McAteer and lector Hans Cappon of the HZ lectureship Water Technology focus on purification via so-called constructed wetlands (CWs).

Want to learn more about Aquatuur and how nature-based, green-blue solutions provide more fresh water? Then register for the kick-off conference taking place in Bruges:
