FWF supports a stand-alone project submitted by the Unit for Water Hygiene (Dr. Alexander Kirschner)
The Austrian Science Fund (FWF) has decided in its session from March 5/6, 2013, to support a further stand-alone project submitted by the Unit for Water Hygiene (Dr. Alexander Kirschner).
Title: Microbial faecal pollution patterns along large rivers
back to: Institute for Hygiene and Applied Immunology
Total sum: approx. 200,000 Euros for 2 years
The project will be executed in the frame of the Interuniversity Cooperation Centre for Water and Health (ICC Water & Health; www.waterandhealth.at), together with the group of Prof. Andreas Farnleitner (TU Vienna). The insights from this study will lead to a better conceptual understanding and new predictive models of microbiological pollution in large rivers like the Danube. The bulk of data will be collected during the upcoming Joint Danube Survey (Aug – Sep 2013), the world´s biggest river expedition.
