CUVE Waters


Technologically sophisticated concepts can easily clash with users’ socio-cultural needs and everyday behaviour. Therefore, the project uses a transdisciplinary approach based on the integration of science, technology and society. This approach is reflected in the project’s structure: scientific components are interlocked with integrative societal components such as participation and governance. This ensures social embedding of technologies and active involvement of institutional players and the local population, strengthening users’ self-reliance and ownership, and ensuring sustainable operation of the plants.
