Theme 3 - Taking Actions
We offer our expertise in:
1) microbiological risks assessment and control strategies in emerging pollutants (lab-scale and operational environments),
2) application and evaluation of novel solutions for reducing emerging pollutants from wastewater pollution in inland and marine ecosystems, e.g. involving fungi-based systems,
3) successful implementation of EU-funded and ERA-NET projects, e.g. M-ERA NET, FACCE SURPLUS.
Research and Innovation Centre Pro-Akademia is a Polish research organisation. Since our establishment in 1996 we have successfully implemented over 200 research and advisory projects for EU institutions, Polish local and central authorities as well as industry, including several projects under H2020 and ERA-Nets. In 2017 we were ranked as the 2nd most effective Polish research organisation among all 963 Polish research organisations in terms of material effects of research activity in the last evaluation of all Polish research organisations by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education.
One of our research areas concerns development of novel solutions for minimising microbiological hazards, also in wastewater. Our Bioprocess Laboratory offers expertise in experimental studies on wastewater streams and novel processing techniques for reducing emerging pollutants. Our Natural Products Laboratory offers expertise in novel solutions for minimising microbiological risks in various eco-systems (novel antimicrobials).
