GO-Fresh is a collaboration between several research institutes in the Southwestern Delta. It aims to improve the freshwater availability in the area surrounded by brackish-saline estuaries. The Freshmaker is one of the freshwater solutions in this area.
The European water research project DESSIN demonstrates and promotes innovative solutions for water scarcity and water quality related challenges & demonstrates a methodology for the valuation of ecosystem services (ESS).
DESSIN is centred around five demonstration sites with special focus on urban areas across Europe, where solutions are being tested and validated. All information and products resulting from the project will be introduced on this website.
The Waterbuffer Foundation promotes the storage of fresh water in the subsurface. The Waterbuffer Foundation was founded in October of 2012 to promote the application of local fresh water buffering solutions in the subsurface for sustainable fresh water supply. By bringing businesses, knowledge institutions and governmental agencies together, the foundation is creating a platform and stimulates hence the use of subsoils for a future-proof fresh water supply. It primarily focuses on increasing knowledge and understanding in the field of subsoil buffering of fresh water, broadening the network of involved parties and encouraging knowledge developments and innovations.

WaterInnEU’s primary vision is to create a marketplace to enhance the exploitation of EU funded ICT models, tools, protocols and policy briefs related to water
and to establish suitable conditions for new market opportunities based on these offerings.
This site is a hub for sister projects on ICT and Water Management.
An initiative has been taken to establish links between two Horizon2020 research and innovation programmes, the SUBSOL and the KINDRA project, in terms of linking the two platforms, in order to provide to both additional quality content with regard to groundwater research and management.
The SUBSOL Knowledge Environment (KE) is an online, flexible and adaptable platform (a Marketplace, a Knowledge Base and a Toolkit) that searches for or shares information about technical solutions for groundwater management in areas with brackish or saline aquifers. It includes information on what has already been applied and tested under different contexts and what were the main lessons learned, with the objective of protecting, enlarging and sustainably utilizing fresh groundwater resources in coastal areas.
The KINDRA European Inventory on Groundwater Research (EIGR) is a strategic tool for inventorying information sources as metadata, containing more than 2000 records related to publications, reports, maps, databases, projects at national and European scale. The EIGR is an on-line public tool for searching and uploading information on Hydrogeological Research and Knowledge as well as for delivering to the European Commission the information in identifying trends and gaps in Groundwater Research.
Towards the purpose of linking and eventually upgrading both systems, a series of keywords among the two platforms has been defined, in order to provide additional knowledge about solutions, applications, research and projects related to sustainable groundwater management.
