The content and structure of the work plan have been chosen to achieve the OLITRVA objectives as efficiently as possible, and within a period of three years. The first stage of the project will cover the assessment of the actual state of RTD capacities in the field of OMW treatment and valorisation. Based on the assessment results, the partners will evaluate challenges, opportunities and potential of this research area in Palestine. In turn, the second stage of the project will be devoted to strengthen RTD capacities of ARIJ by means of a tailor-made strategy for research and cooperation improvement and activities for capacity building. Finally, the dissemination activities seek at increasing international visibility of Palestinian researchers and research institutions, while fostering networking with peer organizations abroad in the frame of OLITREVA International Conference.
Work package 1: Assessment of RTD capacity.
The aim of this WP is to assess RTD capacity for OMW treatment and valorization in Palestine.
Work package 2: Challenges, opportunities and potential of research on OMW treatment and valorisation.
The aim of this work package is to identify challenges, opportunities and potential on OMW treatment and valorization research in Palestine and thus, to chart the course of future research in this field.
Work package 3: Development of research & cooperation strategy.
