The Network

The MARSoluT consortium consists of research institutions, large water industry, SMEs, and governmental agencies. Most of the partners have already collaborated in the previous FP7 MARSOL demonstration project and can thus rely on existing monitoring networks, spatial databases, groundwater analyses and other technical data and experience. The MARSoluT research fellows can benefit not only from the wide range of the partners’ experience but also from the access to the research facilities, laboratories, and field sites of these partners. The high degree of synergy between MARSoluT partners is evident from the complementarity of their expertise and of the planned research.
