Nell’ambito del progetto AQUASYN, finanziato dal Programma “Lifelong Learning Programme Centralized”– Sottoprogramma ERASMUS, il cui principale obiettivo è di contribuire alla formazione dei soggetti che operano in aziende che si occupano dell’imbottigliamento di acqua, il CSEI Catania in qualità di partner è stato incaricato di svolgere alcune attività progettuali relativamente all'Italia. Il CSEI Catania fa parte di un Consorzio di 8 partner di diverse 6 nazioni (Grecia, Spagna, Cipro, Portogallo, Gran Bretagna e Italia) che si occupano delle diverse attività del progetto AQUASYN con il coordinamento di Action Synergy S.A..
In particolare, per il progetto AQUASYN e’ stato predisposto un questionario per le aziende che si occupano di imbottigliamento di acque minerali. Il questionario è stato elaborato in collaborazione con i colleghi spagnoli dell’Universitat de Barcelona e del Laboratorio Dr. Oliver Rodés (www.oliver-rodes.com), con il coordinamento del prof. Miquel Salgot, nella sua versione spagnola il questionario è stato approvato dall’ANEABE (http://www.aneabe.com).

Workshop "The quality of natural water" - La qualità delle acque minerali
Catania, 19.03.2015
 
Presentazioni
 

 
The project AQUASYN was approved in the framework of the Erasmus multilateral projects. The project aims to develop the knowledge and skills of the personnel of the bottled water enterprises through training sessions developed by the universities and research centers. Through these training sessions (which are going to be both online (e-learning with many multimedia elements) and offline (seminars and study visits)) the project partners will transfer and valorize the expertise that they have gained through their research activities.
 
The training modules (which are going to be developed in all the partners' languages) are going to be based on extensive research on the needs of the enterprises of the sector which will include desk research, field research (interviews based on semi-structured questionnaires) and laboratory in which the partners will collect laboratory results for the quality of the stored water in the various partner countries.
 
The project aims to promote the transfer of innovation from the universities and research centers to the enterprises also by the development of an online portal which will be used for publication by the universities of all the research results in the sector. The enterprises will be able to see in the portal all the innovations available and communicate directly with the partners through the use of online collaborative tools.
 
The consortium includes 8 organizations from 6 countries (Greece, Cyprus, UK, Italy, Spain, Portugal) and all the key stakeholders in the sector (universities, enterprises, UETP, research organizations).
 
The impact envisaged by the project is the significant increase of the knowledge and skills of the staff of the enterprises in the sector, fact which will increase the quality of the drinking water that they are providing.
