TU Delft has long been known for excellence in Water Resources and Water Treatment research. Our research addresses relevant worldwide topics such as water and sanitation and mitigation of floods and droughts. Our staff members carry out research in both Europe and the Global South. The research of the Department of Water Management was recently rated as ‘excellent’ buy an external research assessment committee on all three reviewed topics, being ‘quality of research’, ‘viability’ and societal ‘relevance’. The Department is particularly strong in ‘asking hard-scientific questions of societal importance’. Researchers in the department like to take the ‘path less travelled’ in research and education to produce path-breaking and original advances in understanding and solving complex water engineering challenges. This is well reflected in outstanding publications of international impact, leadership in European and International research projects, and a breeding ground for first-rate PhD students.

CEBEDEAU (1947) is a private research and expertise center based in Belgium that focuses on promoting sustainable development and environmental conservation with a focus on water-related issues.
CEBEDEAU’s mission: support and promote the sustainable management of water resources and the resources contained in water (energy, nutrients…). The scope of activity extends to the water cycle in its multiple stages: industrial water, drinking water, urban wastewater, rain, and surface water… to address water challenges such as water pollution, water scarcity, circular economy, biodiversity, water management in industry.
We achieve this through research, technical assistance, consultancy, and education. CEBEDEAU works with a variety of stakeholders: industries, public agencies, academic institutions. CEBEDEAU is participating in various European programs.
Areas of expertise: water treatment, sampling and analyses, data processing and environmental microbiology.
The team is made up of around thirty individuals as laboratory and field sampling technicians, as well as engineers and scientists (PhDs).

UWMH is a stellar group of academics and researchers, whose research and innovation activities are undertaken within the framework of National and European Research and Development projects and find their way into practice through the provision of consultancy services in collaboration with end-users (water companies, local and regional authorities, critical infrastructure operators and national administrations).
KWR Water Research Institute generates knowledge to enable the water sector to operate water-wisely in our urbanised society. Our scientific findings and the resulting practical innovations contribute, worldwide, to a sustainable water provision in the urban watercycle. ‘Bridging science to practice’ is KWR’s motto. Our researchers work at the interface of science, business and society. Their strength lies in their translation of scientific knowledge into applicable, practical solutions for end-users in the Dutch and international water sector. We have built a solid reputation as top-level innovation accelerators and international network builders, and increasingly play a coordinating role in national and international collaborations. KWR has managed and conducted the Joint Research Programme with Dutch en Flemish water companies for forty years. Within ToDrinQ, KWR leads WP6 on the development of a design-support tool for flexible, small-scale drinking water treatment plants.

EYDAP processes and supplies in its area of competence its water. EYDAP’s main water sources and reservoirs are located in pristine areas, free from agricultural and industrial activity, so that the Greek capital is supplied with water of excellent quality that reaches the basin in a natural way, requiring minimal energy consumption.Through esponsibility, expertise and a consistent anthropocentric approach, EYDAP has been successfully managing the water cycle for decades, making it available to all citizens of Attica without discrimination and returning it back to the environment clean. Our strategy is based on achieving a balanced and sustainable development for the benefit of society as a whole, customers, employees, shareholders and the environment. The dynamic triptych of Safety at Work – Operational Efficiency – Development for Society is what defines the Company’s strategic priorities.
To support water quality management, in routine time and during crisis, OliSens develops portable and on-line device for quantifying chemical pollutants in real time.
OliSens proposes several technologies :
IonSens® detects and quantifies nitrate, chloride, fluoride… from 1 mg/L
MetalSens® detects lead, cadmium, nickel, zinc… from 1 µg/L
PestiSens® detects some pesticide molecules and their metabolites.
IonSens® and PestiSens® technologies deliver measurement in less than 2 minutes. These technologies will be tested as a portable and on-line device during the ToDrinQ project. First PestiSens® prototype will be also tested.
These technologies are developed by OliSens in collaboration with academic research laboratories based in Europe and combined with some more usual analytical technologies.
