Mainstreaming Ecological Restoration of freshwater-related ecosystems in a Landscape context: INnovation, upscaling and transformation (MERLIN) is a ‘research and innovation action’ funded under the European Commission’s H2020 programme, coordinated by the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany), which will seek innovative solutions based on nature to restore the functions of freshwater ecosystems and mitigate climate change.

Aqua Publica Europea joins 43 other partners from across Europe, including universities, research institutes, nature conservation organisations, and stakeholders from business, government, and municipalities. Aqua Publica Europea will work on translating and disseminating MERLIN’s findings among European public water operators.
