The overall aim of CO-UDlabs project is integrate research and innovation activities in the field of Urban Drainage Systems to address pressing public health, flood risks and environmental challenges. In the project 17 key large scale research facilities of seven Research Infrastructures (RI) in Europe will be integrated to offer transnational access to high quality laboratory and field facilities, human resources and improved data sharing platforms to the R&D community, water utilities and their supply chain.
In addition, joint research activities will be carried out regarding Smart sensing and monitoring (JRA 1), asset deterioration and management (JRA 2) and improving resilience and sustainability (JRA3) in urban drainage systems.
Nine international partners collaborate to tackle pressing environmental challenges, flood risks and public health issues
