Innovating the Urban Drainage System:
a new collaborative approach
Existing UDS are ageing, but they are critical for protecting public health, reducing pollution impacts and urban flooding risks.
The EU-funded Co-UDlabs project aims to develop innovative solutions and technologies to allow existing UD to innovate for better facing current and future challenges such as increasing urbanization and climate change.
