Active meeting with potential technology providers
SME’s that have developed technologies that might help the DOC2C’s Project Partners to reach their aims on more efficient DOC removal, will be invited by public announcement to get in touch with the project group to assess whether a test of their innovative technology at the pilot locations is viable and attractive to all partners. This meeting will be expected around February 2017.
Active meeting with at least 15 potential end-users
The Project Partners will invite the water utilities amongst the observers to test their water source at the pilot sites via a bench scale test. The Partners will advertise the concept of the testing facility and encourage utilities to have water samples treated with the new technologies. This meeting will be expected around March 2017.
Yearly, at least one workshop will be organized by the Project Partners. A workshop will always be organized around 21st September of each year.
