Why the environment?

To take advantages of the most advanced technologies and drive them to be effectively at the service of the society, nature and people: this is our way to understand the scientific research. The innovation is the main artery towards the progress, intended as improvement of the environmental conditions and human welfare. Within this evolutional process, the water has a fundamental and paramount role. Ensuring water purity in the houses as a contribution for the purification of seas and rivers through the development of nanotechnologies, is the driving purpose of our activity and our daily commitment.

Why Europe?

The European Commission has always strongly supported the scientific research, understood as an incisive instrument aimed to the European socio-economical growth. The science and the people involved owe a lot to the continuous support provided by the European Commission to the technologies development and to their implementation.  Equally, the WATER project of the CNR-Catania comes up thanks to the funding of the European Commission that carefully have verified the project processes, methodologies and ideas, believing in the values of its objectives and in the enthusiasm of the working team.
