The safe and affordable supply of drinking water in the EU under the pressure of climate change is a key priority. The European joint project SafeCREW, led by the DVGW Research Centre at Hamburg University of Technology, will address this key priority over the next three and a half years. SafeCREW will develop new methods for monitoring, quality assessment, treatment and distribution of drinking water and will derive guidelines for drinking water management and integrated risk assessment for water suppliers and authorities. The project has received 3.9 million euros in funding from Horizon Europe to provide answers to this important question: How do we need to adapt technologies for European water supply in order to provide safe and healthy drinking water under climate change conditions?
SafeCREW has successfully kicked off with a meeting in Hamburg on 1 and 2 December 2022.
