The 3rd meeting of the MADFORWATER project took place in Montpellier – France from the 3rd to the 5th of July 2017. During the meeting partners discussed different aspects related to the general advancement of the project. Specific attention was given to open access obligations, to the definition of suitable treatment trains for the different wastewater targeted by the project, to the preliminary results from the LCA and CBA of the project technologies, to the construction of a large stakeholder database. The last day of the meeting was devoted to the exploitation strategy seminar (ESS) held by the exploitation expert, Dr. Antonia Lorenzo. The ESS is a brainstorming exercise aimed at identifying and characterizing the most important exploitable results (or Key Exploitable results, KERs), including the evaluation of the risks and obstacles for their exploitation. In the coming weeks Dr. Antonia Lorenzo will prepare a report summarising the results of the seminar and providing recommendations for the future exploitation activities.
The next meeting will be held in Bari in December 2017.
