New technologies in the water sector can contribute to the flexible and sustainable development of urban water management and the sustainable utilisation of water as a resource. In a recent article in the journal Aqua & Gas, a team of researchers from the aquatic research institute Eawag shows what opportunities and risks are associated with this.

Research Projects

Using freshwater isopods to understand how gut microbiome mediates host function in the face of environmental stress
Functional characterization of isopod-microbe symbiosis
The architecture of community structure, functional traits and trophic networks across blue-green ecosystems
New tools to monitor changes in ecosystem conditions and to quantify genetic changes of populations in (semi-)natural environments to predict how human mediated environmental change will influence stability and resilience of ecosystems.
