Climate change, a growing world population and urbanisation pose new challenges in water management. A quarter of all treated water in Europe is lost due to leakages alone. In some Member States it is 50% of fresh water. Water scarcity will be a growing challenge not only in the south of Europe.
To address these challenges, the European Commission is offering a Horizon prize with a cash reward of € 2 000 000. The winner is the Fenix Hub solution.
