University and research represent a fundamental qualification point for conducting research projects aimed at process and system innovation.
The five-year framework agreement signed in 2019 with the Department of Civil Engineering, Architecture, Territory, Environment and Mathematics (DICATAM) of the University of Brescia to structure and consolidate a relationship, through a management committee that meets periodically, aimed at a close synergy regarding the water resource, has continued successfully.
In 2022, several collaborations were also initiated, in particular with:
University of Brescia for the projects:
Technological and process optimisation in wastewater and sludge treatment for reducing the environmental footprint and combating climate change
Models for the sustainable ecological transition of the integrated water system
Support for the ClimADA project - Climatic and Environmental Reconstruction of the Adamello and Central Alps area
Activation of the advanced training course in "sustainability in the water sector" with SMAE - School of management and advanced education
University of Milan: 'IDROGEO LAKE' - hydrogeophysical characterisation and mathematical modelling of groundwater flow for efficient and sustainable management of groundwater resources for human consumption
In addition, continued the research projects with:
Politecnico di Milano - Reuse of purified water (EU Regulation 741/2020) and optimisation and enhancement of treatment schemes depending on the source of supply and type of contaminants
Bicocca University - Impact of climate change on groundwater to support medium- and long-term water resource management planning
