Three-pillar approach

The functioning principles of the Aqua Research Collaboration consist of  a three-pillar approach.

The three pillars of ARC are described as follows:

  1. Develop and execute a European water cycle research programme (collaborative research);
  2. Develop and execute implementation programmes for novel approaches and technologies in cooperation with utilities, water authorities and technology providers (action research);
  3. Develop and execute capacity building projects in cooperation with local and regional water cycle institutions.
