The core of Hydrosolidarity platform consists of a group of operators in southern Sweden under the leadership of Lund University. Participation in the platform was done primarily a year ago by researchers based on a hydrosolidarity project with interdisciplinary cooperation at Pufendorf Institute. All faculties except the Art is involved in the platform.
Lund University has Sweden's premier researchers in the field of water and the unique position of these scholars not only represents the technology side but also several disciplines. The number of annual doctoral dissertation is about 20 in water sector.
The core also includes:
