The SAFEWATER project (01/11/2013-31/12/2016) had the aim to develop a comprehensive and pragmatic platform to manage the safety and security of drinking water, reducing the time to react and effectively respond to a crisis.
It encompassed the development of use cases, software and sensor developments as well as field trials in a range of different settings.
It was a collaborative research project funded by the European Commission under the FP7 SECURITY programme involving 9 partners from Europe and Israel.
It was coordinated by ARTTIC, France and Fraunhofer, Germany and included the involvement of three water utilities, a number of leading edge research and technological operators in the area of sensors, event management, water management simulation and integration and project managerial expertise.
This ambitious multidisciplinary project lasted 3 years and its results represent a major step forward in the state of the art of drinking water security in general and preparedness against CBRN attacks in particular.
