Eco-sustainability from Europe to India

Teco 'Technological Eco-Innovations for the Quality Control of Polluted Waters and Soils' is a new environmental project funded by the European Union and coordinated by the National Research Council (Cnr) of Italy, in collaboration with the National Environmental Engineering Research Insitute (Neeri) in India.

The total funding is about 440.000 Eur. A part of it is bound for the mobility of European researchers, engineers and experts who wish to spend a period up to six months in Indian research institutes or private companies to develop innovative ideas in the field of new technologies applied to the decontamination of waters and soils.

Teco goal is to improve and promote collaborations between Europe and India in the field of environmental sustainability. India has a strategic role in this era of global changes and challenge for a sustainable future. India, with its huge population, second only to China’s, is living an industrial and social change never seen in its history. This transformation must consider important aspects such as preservation of biodiversity, good management of the territory, conservation of soils and waters from the increasing chemical and biological pollution and, last but not least, the food security of population. The project aims to support such innovative technologies that can help to prevent or to fight the deterioration of natural resources.

New opportunities of collaboration with private companies or public administration will be particularly taken into consideration.

The first call will open in June 2015. A scientific Indo-Italian committee will select the projects and the mobility programme will start from January 2016 until December 2018.
