iMERMAID is an EU-funded project that will develop, deploy and demonstrate advanced, innovative and reproducible solutions to prevent, monitor, and remedy toxic and persistent chemical pollution in the Mediterranean Sea basin.
iMERMAID seeks to create an evidence-based multidimensional framework that will guide policymaking and transform societal perceptions regarding CoEC usage, emissions, and pollution. It aims to develop next-generation sensor and remediation technologies to effectively monitor and remove prioritized chemicals at their source, thus minimizing upstream pollution.
The project brings together a diverse interdisciplinary team comprising SMEs, researchers, regulators, and innovation professionals. This collaborative effort aims to enhance knowledge and awareness of CoEC while also strengthening regulations, expanding economic possibilities, and improving the standard of living for EU residents. The project contributes to the goal to create a zero-pollution environment and contaminant-free waters in the Mediterranean Sea basin, aligning with the goals of the Chemical Strategy. By integrating innovative solutions and fostering collaboration, iMERMAID aims to mitigate the impact of human activities on the Mediterranean Sea and promote sustainable practices for the future.
We support the project with our expertise in innovation and project management, and as leader of task 6.3 “Innovation Management, Exploitation and Sustainability”.
Funded by the European Union under the Horizon Europe Program, Grant No: 101112824.
