 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The AQUAVALENS consortium has brought together SMEs, Industries, Universities and Research Institutes with the mission of protecting the health of European Citizens from contaminated drinking water and water used in food processing. We will achieve this by developing sustainable technologies to enable water system managers whether in large or small water systems or within food growers or manufacturers to better control the safety of their water supplies. The work of the project is divided into four main clusters of work packages that sequentially lead to the development of appropriate technologies. These four clusters are: 1. Platform targets, 2. Platform development, 3. Field studies in European drinking water systems, and 4. Improving Public Health through safer water. In cluster 1 we shall generate new knowledge on the molecular genetics of viral, bacterial and parasitic waterborne pathogens. This will enable us to identify gene targets for the identification, and characterisation of these pathogens, that will also enable the determination of their virulence for humans. In cluster 2 we shall use the knowledge gained to develop new technologies that integrate sample preparation and detection into a single platform. These platforms will then be subject to a rigorous process of validation and standardisation. In cluster 3 we will use the validated platforms to undertake a series of field studies in large and small drinking water systems, and in food production. These field studies will generate new knowledge about the risk to public health from waterborne pathogens in Europe and also test the value of the technologies in the field. Finally in cluster 4 we test how these technologies can be used to protect human health, though improving the effectiveness of Water Safety Plans, adaptation to climate change, and control of outbreaks of infectious disease. We will also determine the sustainability and potential economic impacts of these technologies.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

The health of Europeans will soon be improved by a set of state-of-the-art tests that can rapidly detect disease-causing pathogens in Europe's water supplies.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Although the EU has high water safety standards, thousands of Europeans fall sick each year from drinking water contaminated with bacteria, viruses and parasites. Identifying the presence of pathogens prior to water consumption is a challenge exacerbated by countless small water suppliers that are difficult to monitor.

The EU-funded http://www.aquavalens.org (AQUAVALENS) (Protecting the health of Europeans by improving methods for the detection of pathogens in drinking water and water used in food preparation) project is developing accurate tests for rapidly identifying waterborne pathogens.

AQUAVALENS is standardising ways to monitor water safety from varying sources like treated drinking water, groundwater or water used to produce food. Importantly, researchers are using cutting-edge science to pinpoint the presence of microbes and parasites while simultaneously determining if they can cause disease.

They are doing this by identifying the genes that enable viral, bacterial and parasitic pathogens to cause disease. After developing ways to detect these disease-related genes in the water, their methods will be tested in water treatment systems and in food processing plants.

In addition to identifying disease-causing genes, researchers are also developing indicators of faecal pollution in water and, importantly, trace its source. AQUAVALENS data will be used to improve water safety plans and enable a more reliable assessment of risks posed by climate change and emerging pathogens.
