Dresden and Helmholtz unite for water science

Dresden University of Technology has teamed up with the Helmholtz Association to create what it says is the largest centre for water research in Europe.

The centre will be established in Saxony and bring together more than 500 researchers from the university and the association’s Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ). They will research cleaning and processing technologies, as well as strategies to cope with water shortages and problems in freshwater circulation.

The Helmholtz Association, a network of German research centres, said in a statement that problems in water supply are expected to intensify due to the changing global climate. To allow such topics to be addressed from different angles, the centre will take a multidisciplinary approach.
