WHO reports annular death of 5 million people caused by the use of contaminated water. To reduce this number more effective purification technologies and grow of ecological consciousness should be introduced. Both of them are considered in the project by the following objectives: to bring together some international research teams,
- to focus their invention on a search for new materials to be used in water treatment,
- to merge the students curricula,
- to open the double supervising issue.
The exchange supports some collaboration programs among the European partners (TUBITAK, MEDRC, NATO projects) and refreshes it with new Chilean input. The project makes more strengthen ties between two European and one of leading Chilean universities that is initiated by common project of the Chilean National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research. Two European institutions are participating:
-Wroclaw University of Technology, Faculty of Chemistry, Poland,
-Ege University, Faculty of Engineering, Turkey,
and one Chilean university:
-Concepcion University, Center for Research on Advanced Polymers.
The project is scheduled for 3 years and envisages exchange of 8 researchers form Europe and 3 from Conception University. Researchers of each partner university will participate in 2 workshops together with participants of a hosting institution. The main point of the exchange program is to expand an overseas collaboration and to deliver the most relevant state-of-the-art on nanostructured materials and innovative technologies for water purification.
The long term goals of the research are as follows:
-to develop scientific relationship between Europe and Chile related to water treatment,
-to promote new market for innovative materials and technologies,
-to modify teaching programs and put them in line with scientific, industrial and social challenges.
