Diving into Water-Related Challenges

Water is a precious resource facing global challenges such as scarcity and pollution. To address these issues, the 2023 CHARM-EU R&I Days hosted a co-creation workshop at the Universitat de Barcelona. Researchers and external stakeholders worked together to develop multidisciplinary research proposals focused on water-related challenges. The four main topics that emerged as central themes were water sustainability regulation, coastal sustainability, water reuse, and urban landscape. Participants had the opportunity to pitch their potential solutions and present how their proposal could be developed.
