Water resources and their management -->Water resources and their management Overview
Project objectives:
The Objectives of CityNet are to understand, describe, analyse and provide decision support for a problem-oriented, cost-efficient, and sustainable urban 
water management in European cities, including their water resources, technical infrastructure and management challenges. Form a network of excellence
and expertise on urban water management available to advise the EU-Commission and other governmental and administrative bodies on state-of-the-art and
research needs in urban water management. Link individual project and integrated cluster activities to other ongoing European, international and national
research projects. Position the outcomes of the individual projects and the cluster for application and commercialisation in Europe and worldwide.
Project Summary:
The CityNet project cluster consists of of six individual 5 FWP projects and dealswith the integrated aspects of water management in urban areas (water supply, 
sewerage, drainage) including their urban/rural interfaces (raw water sources, receiving waters, groundwater). The CityNet cluster consists of 47 research
partners and 59 end-users I thus comprising a significant part of the European R&D capacity and implementation potential in urban water systems. This proposal
for Accompanying Measures (AM) aims to widen and deepen the joint activities of the cluster partners with respect to three aspects of integration, i.e. (1)
the urban water system and its water resources (2) the necessary infrastructure for water supply, urban drainage and wastewater management, and (3)the socioeconomic
aspects of urban water management.
