Innovative management of groundwater resources- training programme for eu accession countries

Objective

Groundwater protection and drinking water conservation are key issues for EU Member States and an enormous challenge for EU Accession (EA) Countries due to many environmental and financial problems. IMAGE-TRAIN is a training programme for 10 EA Countries, providing innovative knowledge on cost-efficient groundwater management (GWM) and will train 40 participants, mainly GWM decision makers, over 3 years. IMAGE-TRAIN comprises scientific and technological input from currentFP5 research projects in the field of GWM, local expertise and requirements of EA Countries, an introduction to general funding opportunities, and the overcoming of language barriers. The key objectives are to improve the GW situation in EA Countries and in particular to render projects feasible by introducing cost-effective and easy-to-implement technologies. IMAGE-TRAIN will strengthen European excellency in GWM and contribute to the EU's enlargement policy.
