GLOBAQUA landing to MARS

08 September 2017

It is with great pleasure that we announce the establishing of an important partnership with MARS. The two projects share similar aims but while MARS is finishing quite soon, GLOBAQUA will last until 2019. For this reason, it was agreed that GLOBAQUA could build on MARS experiences to streamlining results presentation and dissemination of both projects. The agreement includes specific actions like merging the projects’ stakeholder contact lists to broaden groups, work together for the development of the Freshwater Information Platform sharing project updates and case studies data, ensure a co-validation of the key final products (i.e. guidance for River Basin Managers) by both Consortia.
