Welcome to the ISIS Project website
In modern society citizens expect and rely upon a constant and low-cost supply of clean water that is fit to consume directly from the tap.
Water distribution systems though are vulnerable to deliberate, accidental or natural contamination, having many potential entry points for rapid and extensive distribution of harmful substances.
The ISIS project aims to enhance public security by developing an advanced monitoring system for drinking water networks that instantly detects chemical or biological contamination and gives a clear indication of the risk level.
Financed by the Seventh Framework Programme, the project brings together European water company end-users with security and sensor specialists from the research, academic and SME communities.
