intcatch

INTCATCH is a large Horizon2020 Innovation Action co-founded by the European Union which will instigate a paradigm shift in the monitoring and management of surface water quality that is fit for global waters in the period 2020-2050. The project aims to bring together, validate and exploit into a single efficient and replicable business model, a range of innovative monitoring tools for river and lake water quality:

-Autonomous and radio controlled boats equipped with innovative sensors

-Next generation DNA test kits

-Innovative and sustainable treatment systems for combined sewer overflows (CSOs)

-Cloud based geo referenced data management solutions to make data visible to the whole community

-Decision Support System (DSS) to optimize water quality monitoring strategies.

INTCATCH innovations will be first demonstrated in Lake Garda catchment,  a very sensitive and strategic European water body, then replicated in other European sites.

INTCATCH aims at engaging stakeholders, local communities and tourists to validate a novel model where the citizen scientists are central in the sustainable catchment management.
