MARS is a research project and supports European policies, such as the Water Framework Directive, and the Blueprint to Safeguard Europe’s Water Resources. It has two target groups: water managers assessing and restoring rivers and lakes, and policy makers drafting and implementing policies related to water.
GLOBAQUA - The main aim of GLOBAQUA is to achieve a better understanding on how current water management practices and policies could be improved by identifying their main drawbacks and alternatives.
OpenNESS aims to translate the concepts of Natural Capital (NC) and Ecosystem Services (ES) into operational frameworks that provide tested, practical and tailored solutions for integrating ES into land, water and urban management and decision-making. It examines how the concepts link to, and support, wider EU economic, social and environmental policy initiatives and scrutinizes the potential and limitations of the concepts of ES and NC.
REFORM targets the development of guidance and tools to improve the success of river restoration measures.It seeks to make river restoration and mitigation measures more cost-effective and to support the 2nd and future River Basin Management Plans (RMBPs) for the WFD.
SOLUTIONS searches for new and improved tools, models, and methods to support decisions in environmental and water policies. Therefore, the overall goal of the project is to produce consistent solutions for the large number of legacy, present and future emerging chemicals posing a risk to European water bodies with respect to ecosystems and human health.
