Freshwater resources in coastal regions are under enormous stress due to population growth, pollution, climate change and political conflicts, and many coastal cities have already suffered extreme water shortages.
OFF-SOURCE will address if and how offshore freshened groundwater (OFG) – groundwater stored in the sub-seafloor with a total dissolved solid concentration below that of seawater – can be used as an unconventional source of freshwater in coastal regions.
ITC Conference Grant
Conference Grants are aimed at supporting PhD students and Young Researchers and Innovators (age <40), from participating Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITC) to attend international science and technology-related conferences.
