WaterProtect: EU Project


The Horizon 2020 project WaterProtect will develop new solutions and tools in 7 Action labs where water pollution (nutrients and/or pesticides) from intensive agriculture may affect the quality of the water for drinking water production.


Upscaling successful practices from action labs to EU

The WaterProtect projects aims at a strong long-term multiplier effect for the lessons and successful practices of the Action labs and other good examples into new policy and governance instruments around Europe. Specific attention is paid to communication and dissemination since it is vital for the success of the project.

EFBW's involvement

EFBW will provide expertise related to water safety and water protection in natural mineral water protection areas. The aim is to showcase the close cooperation between farmers, communities, NGOs and bottled water producers to reduce point source and diffuse pollution at catchment scale.

More detailed information about the project and EFBW’s involvement will follow soon.


WaterProtect relates to the Horizon 2020 Work Programme under the topic ‘Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy’, and addresses the Topic: Water farms – improving farming and supply of drinking water.
