The main objective of AQUIFER is to capitalize, test, disseminate and transfer innovative practices for the preservation, monitoring and integrated management of aquifers that are helpful when making decisions about the management of groundwater resources, improve technology transfer to local agents, create new synergies and develop common tools in a context of scarcity of water resources and environmental threats.

The main innovative element of AQUIFER is the consideration of the problem in its entirety: experimentation of management tools on the components “quantity” and “quality” of water: management of recharge, monitoring network and hydrological modeling, especially. Likewise, detect, test and implement innovations thanks to the 3 water clusters linked to a network of actors and startups in the water sector and the creation of a decision support tool to disseminate good practices through the creation of a permanent and free website for all water stakeholders.
