The project is coordinated by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden with support from Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).
RISE aims to strengthen Sweden’s innovation system for sustainable innovations in times of crises and disaster. Its role includes: overall project management and coordination and developing concepts for testing, validation, demonstration and sustainability goals. RISE will also lead the development of generic tools for validation of innovations as well as scaling and exporting models.
SEI is contributing with knowledge and experience in developing countries and sustainability work as well as insights into framework conditions for off-grid solutions globally. SEI focuses on conducting baseline studies and data collection with the aim to deliver these data for tool development in the project.
Products in the project with test sites in Sweden include: Millennium Desalination Device by IngesonWater and PureBio Synergy.
