About WaterProtect

The Horizon 2020 project WaterProtect developed new solutions and tools in 7 Action labs where water pollution (nutrients and/or pesticides) from intensive agriculture may affect the quality of the water for drinking water production.

Upscaling successful practices from action labs to EU

The WaterProtect Consortium aimed at a strong long term multiplier effect for the lessons and successful practices of the Action labs and other good examples into new policy and governance instruments around Europe. Specific attention is paid to communication and dissemination since it is vital for the success of the project.

Project Duration:

June 2017 until September 2020


WaterProtect relates to the Horizon 2020 Work Programme under the topic ‘Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy’, and addresses the Topic: Water farms – improving farming and supply of drinking water.

This project received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
