Objectives
SHARP deals with innovative tools, methodologies and technologies
to improve the quantity and quality of existing groundwater resour-
ces. The project focuses on knowledge exchange of innovative
techniques to protect groundwater resources in the nine partner
regions. SHARP will help to solve the existing conflict on groundwa-
ter reserves between drinking water supply and the water supply for
irrigation or industrial use.
Expected Results
n
15 successfully transferred good practices which will lead to at
least eight direct improvements of regional / local policies and
strategies concerning groundwater resources
n
More sensitivity / awareness of climate change related problems
created
n
15 improvements / adaptations of existing technologies due to
improved knowledge.
n
Installation of a sustainable groundwater experts network
within different European regions (Experts obtained by SHARP
increased competence in the groundwater management. To
ensure effective dissemination of expert knowledge, direct and
permanent connections to existing water utilities and water
utilities are built.)
n
Direct contacts with policy makers
n
Improved knowledge on groundwater management systems due
to SHARP Study Visits
