The three EU projects funded under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme, Globaqua, Cytothreat & Endetech, together with SCARCE from the Consolider Programme (Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness), organised a workshop in which pharmaceuticals were regarded from a multidisciplinary perspective. During talks, posters and discussions, experts from different fields had the opportunity for exchange of ideas, knowledge and experiences from their respective fields. Marta Hernandez (cetaqua) presented a poster on WA1 results on Managed Aquifer Recharge.
The Workshop covered the problems associated with the occurrence, treatment and risk of pharmaceuticals and consisted of four sessions:
- Analysis of pharmaceuticals in waste waters and hospital effluents,
- Fate and behavior of pharmaceuticals in Waste Water Treatment Plants and River water,
- Remediation Technologies, and
- Risk assessment.
