NANOWATER
Innovative and affordable concept for surveillance and
management of emerging micropollutants in water using nanotechnologies.

The Main Objective

Managing nanoparticles and use of nanotechnology in water through the following actions:
Joint efforts
Development of research-based educational activities as a joint problem-focused course, educational materials and jointly trained MSc students.
US-Norway mobility
Increase mobility of students between Norway and the US, facilitating the development of their R&D competence and international networking, which they can carry into a professional career.
Integrated research collaboration
Increase integration of higher education and research in the collaboration between Norway and the US by using academic and student research capabilities to solve end-users challenges and explore opportunities for entrepreneurship and commercialization of research results.
Stakeholder involvement in academia
Increase involvement of industrial and public stakeholders in the academic community, transforming learning into a partnership between students, academics and industrialists, making the graduate education more relevant to the needs of the industry/end-users.

Key concepts
