The Aquavalens research project aims to protect the health of European citizens from contamination in drinking water and water used in food processing by improving testing of drinking water.
The project will develop and use new molecular and cell based techniques to allow the routine detection of waterborne pathogens and improve the provision of safe, hygienic water for drinking and food production throughout Europe.
