Project Details


There is a concern within the KASK region over the presence and dispersion of waterborne pathogenic viruses. Consequently, there are a number of ongoing studies and research projects which will be coordinated under VISK. VISK will develop knowledge and competence for public action, which will lead to human well-being and quality of life. VISK will be a network of competence for sustainable and safe drinking water systems, where municipalities within the KASK region and beyond can seek advice for contingency and safety plans.

The VISK work packages include; project leadership, epidemiology, mapping, virus reduction, risk communication, communication strategies, as well dissemination and communication.

VISK results will be collated in a communication and action plan which will be disseminated to politicians, water industry stakeholders and society. The aim is to enable correct decision-making.
