Project objectives:
An important objective of WEKNOW is a construction of the 'Crystal Clear Pages' of expertise on drinking water, containing information and links to European 
leading scientists and research centers dealing with relevant topics on drinking water. The 'Map of Expertise' (MoE) gathers information on persons and research institutes dealing with drinking water not only in EU Member States, but also other
European countries, representatives of which participate in EU-funded projects and national research projects. The 'Map of Knowledge' (MoK) forms a database of on-going or recently completed research projects, including the projects within the Drinking Water cluster.
It will be accessible to all interested researchers and can be used as a source of information in defining new research needs.
Project Summary:
Primary goal of the Concerted Action is to bring together all stakeholders involved in the process of supplying drinking water to European citizens in order 
to maximize the impact of European research and effort in all areas related to drinking water. Objectives : Exchange of information and knowledge focused on
drinking water quality; Smooth implementation of the DWD; Co-ordination of research on topics linked to water quality; Dissemination of knowledge;support
in standardisation. The Concerted Action will provide a bottom-up identification of the collective ambition within Europe; A bottom-up identification
and priority setting of knowledge needs;
