    Summary : REWATERGY is a consortium of six partners composed by 3 universities and 3 companies with a balanced participation of beneficiaries and partner organizations, academic and non-academic. All the participants are mutually involved in scientific and educational tasks, formed in several fields (chemical analysis, environmental fate, photocatalysis, material science, membrane technology and water management), sharing the interest towards environmental studies and determined to achieve the primary objective of guaranteeing access to safe water to the entire society through the formation of young scientists specialist in water treatment.
