DESAL+ LIVING LAB has been officially running since 2017 and there are several number of R&D&I projects and services done or in progress.
Macaronesian platform to increase excellence in R&D&i in water desalination and knowledge of the desalinated water-energy nexus (January 2017 – November 2020). Co-financed by
The project has the general objective of creating and consolidating a joint R&D&i platform in the Macaronesian region. The aim of this platform is to have an excellent, internationally recognised, research and infrastructure standards in the area of desalination, the water-energy nexus and the exclusive use of renewable energies.
