Division Water Quality and Health

Water is essential for human health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), almost 10% of global health impacts are due to unsafe water or lack of sanitation.

Our division focuses on the development and application of forward-looking methods for the analysis of health-related microbiological water quality. In line with the WHO approach, traditional examination parameters are also linked to directly health-oriented quality targets. Based on this, monitoring and management strategies for safe water use are derived.

The research focus on water quality and health is realized in the context of the expansion of the Interuniversity Cooperation Centre Water & Health (ICC Water & Health) founded between the Medical University of Vienna and TU Wien. Through the multidisciplinary cooperation of these three institutions, an internationally visible center for water and health in the Central European Danube Region will be established.
