Special session at IFAC World Congress

July 17, 2023

The consortium presented application related research results at upcoming 22nd IFAC World Congress which took place from 9 to 14 July 2023 in Yokohama, Japan. It is one of the largest gatherings of systems and control engineers in research and is thus well suited to present the final project results to a larger scientific audience. The partners from KAUST were hosting an open invited track on "Asymptotic and Non-Asymptotic Estimation Methods for Nonlinear Systems" which corresponds with the PURE-WATER project scope. As the event took place shortly after the PURE-WATER project end, the partners got the chance for a final meeting on a conference to assess the collaborative achievements.

Project end

June 30, 2023

The official end has been shifted to the end of Jun 2023. The evaluation of the final results is currently in preparation. Since the project start in 2019, the PURE-WATER project connected young and experienced researchers from the involved institutions in Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. We thank all the involved staff members for their insightful contributions towards better information processing for improving water filtration problems. We wish them all the best for their career and hope that they keep to impact people's lives with their inventions.

Project resumption

January 1, 2022

The current circumstances allow for the resumption of the project related travel activities due to vaccination progress and increased hygienic standards. As of now, the exchange of researchers can finally take place again after a long break. We are looking forward to fruitful discussions between the involved scientists and the PURE-WATER community.


February 22 & 24, 2021

In order to exchange recent research results within the consortium, an online event is realized which gives every partner the chance to present their current scientific work. These presentations include a short lecture on exact state observers by the colleagues from AGH as well as topics in the fields of diagnosis, Modulating Function selection, distributed systems and further water applications. Other contributions from PURE-WATER partner institutions are listed below.

Agenda overview:

Project suspension

November 11, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation and the related travel restrictions as well as the respective health risks, all researcher exchange activities of the PURE-WATER project are suspended. The contact between the consortium partners is maintained online for proceeding with the scientific work.

Kick-off meeting

February 6, 2019

The kick-off meeting of the project takes place at TU Ilmenau, Germany, where all European partners will be present. Our collegues from overseas are connected via videoconference. Together we will discuss our plan of secondments, the administration and management structure as well as important aspects of dissemmination.

Official project start

January 1, 2019

Official start of the PURE-WATER project. The consortium looks forward to exciting research and exchange experiences.
