The scope of assessment is the symbiotic, circular economy solutions being developed in the case studies in Wider Uptake. The framework aims to assess water smartness and sustainability of such solutions, and the version being tested has been developed with input from all work packages and case studies in the project, including local stakeholders.

The testing is an important step towards developing a generic framework for assessment of water smartness and sustainability with possibilities for local adaptation, for existing or planned solutions outside the project. This generic version of the framework will be the final delivery from Work Package 5.

This was the second testing workshop, the first was held in connection to the mobile lab in Palermo.
