The overall objective of SHARP is to save and protect existing water resources for future generations. To achieve that goal project partners from seven different European countries exchange and develop promising and innovative technologies in the frame of sustainable groundwater management and risk prevention of water supplies which will improve future decisions and actions at the local/regional level. This scope of SHARP supports the
conservation, improvement and sustainable availability of groundwater resources – essential for human beings, animals and plants.
The SHARP project deals in general with innovative tools, methodologies and technologies to enhance the quantity and quality of existing groundwater resources, to protect and save them for future use. Therefore SHARP helps to solve the existing conflict on groundwater reserves between drinking water supply and the water supply for irrigation or industrial use. In that context, all project partners share their knowledge in the area of general groundwater management and transfer their experiences. The close cooperation between project partners coming from European regions with different climate, geological and geographical conditions assures the development of new approaches and innovative solutions of the common problems.
