Sponsorship of iGEM MSP-Maastricht

Almost 70% of our planet is covered with water. Yet for many, accessibility to freshwater is a struggle. With the growing world population, climate change, and pollution, the need for freshwater is becoming ever more urgent.

That’s why we, as SHE, are sponsoring the innovative Maastricht student-team iGEM MSP-Maastricht that wants to tackle this challenge. Their project Aestuarium aims to develop an energy efficient solution for desalination of salt water. By doing so, SHE wants to contribute to global health by making freshwater available for everyone while saving energy. This is also our way of compensating for the carbon-footprint that comes with travelling for our international activities.
