The ARC partners cooperated in TECHNEAU, an integrated project funded by the European Commission, which challenges the ability of traditional system and technology solutions for drinking water supply to cope with present and future global threats and opportunities. This was initiated through rethinking of current water supply options and by providing researched and demonstrated, as well as new and improved, technologies for the whole water supply chain. The TECHNEAU project was ended by December 2010. For more information, see website:
