  • Partners and pilot study cases

    The InTheMED consortium, coordinated by Prof. Jaime Gómez-Hernández from IIAMA UPV, counts with the expertise of researchers from different research centers and universities from Spain, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Tunisia and Turkey.

  • Main lines carried out in each case study

    InTheMED project will develop a decision support tool that is easy to use and available to communities on a web platform, by collecting, verifying and analysing the historical information available in the study areas.


The overall objective of the InTheMED project is to implement innovative and sustainable management tools and remediation strategies for MED aquifers (inland and coastal) in order to mitigate anthropogenic and climate-change threats by creating new long-lasting spaces of social learning among different interdependent stakeholders, NGOs, and scientific researchers in five field case studies, located at the two shores of the MED basin, namely in Spain, Greece, Portugal, Tunisia, and Turkey.

InTheMED will develop an inclusive process that will establish an ensemble of innovative assessment and management tools and methodologies including a high-resolution monitoring approach, smart modelling, a socio-economic assessment, web-based decision support systems and new configurations for governance to establish efficient and sustainable integrated groundwater management in the MED considering both the quantitative and qualitative aspects.

InTheMED project is financed by PRIMA (Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area) funded by the European programme H2020.


InTheMED project overview by Prof. J. Jaime Gómez-Hernández



The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth.

The PRIMA programme is an Art. 185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union's Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
