Water Spoutt Research Project
WATERSPOUTT aims at providing safe drinking water to communities who rely on unsafe sources. The consortium is carrying out a technological development programme to advance three applications based on Solar Disinfection (SODIS), which can make water safe to drink after it has been collected. In parallel, a social science programme has been structured to make sure that the technologies are adopted by the target communities in rural Africa, with the support of the local authorities and in an economically sustainable way. WATER SPOUTT is an EU funded project with the lead partner RCSI – Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland with 18 partners in total with Safewater’s Dr Pilar Fernandez representing, Plataforma Solar de Almería of CIEMAT – Centro de Investigaciones Energeticas, Medioambientales y Tecnologicas, on this sister project.
