Scope of the SIGN II project

 

Water is essential for each kind of life, but often its quality is threatened by multiple sources of pollution.

The Sino-German research project SIGN will contribute towards improving water quality in the Taihu region close to Shanghai, China. From 2015 to 2018 the powerful project consortium of research facilities, companies and concerned stakeholders worked on both - the lake water itself serving as water resource and the drinking water for the megacities Wuxi and Suzhou (SIGN I).

In the second phase (SIGN II) the Chinese and German partners continue and extend the activities of SIGN in order to successfully manage the challenging research tasks of the SIGN II project.
