Asking new questions and rethinking water

Social challenges require responsible solutions.

Wasser 3.0 pursues the goal of meaningfully counteracting global water pollution by micro-pollutants with solution-oriented research and innovation. In doing so, we are guided in particular by the sustainability goals of the United Nations with these key points:

  • Long-term protection of water as a habitat or as a central element of habitats.
  • Protecting water in its various facets as a resource for present and future generations.
  • Development of options for a sustainable nature-compatible, economic and social development.
As a non-profit company, we are located at the interface between science, business, politics and society. Here we are looking for new ways to conduct responsible research and innovation with all parties involved and to launch effective solutions for clean water. Due to the Wasser 3.0 history, micro-pollutant research in the field of water is an essential component of our work.

Water polluted with micro-pollutants is a highly complex system. Above all: not all waters are the same. Detecting micro-pollutants in water and removing them sustainably has posed enormous challenges for science and industry for years.

Dr. Katrin Schuhen and her team at Wasser 3.0 represent a completely new approach. Here, a maximum of interdisciplinary expertise combined with enormous research and innovation power meets the necessary idealism.

Responsible research with a clear goal and focus

Research for the benefit of the environment and society

Wasser 3.0 meets existing and future challenges in the field of water purification and removal of micro-pollutants with responsible solutions.

This requires a close networking of the areas of research, development and innovation with the areas of communication, education and organization.

Always oriented towards the overriding interests and needs of the environment and society - uninfluenced by particular individual interests, always in dialogue with the involved and affected stakeholders from science, business, politics and society.
We see the approach of responsible research and innovation and under the umbrella of a non-profit company as a viable way of addressing highly complex issues in a comprehensive and thus sustainable manner. This means...
  • … interdisciplinary, agile and responsible research and working methods.
  • … transparent scientific and everyday communication about our work and findings.
  • … socio-political information and advice.
  • … dialogue formats with and networking of relevant stakeholders.
  • … educational projects and promotion of young scientists.
  • … collective intelligence, joint learning and appreciative communication as the basis of our cooperation.
We are researchers, developers, innovators, initiators, mediators, gap-fillers, trainers, coaches and/or representatives. With a clear attitude for responsible research and innovation.
