European project on wastewater-based epidemiology EuSeME started
december 17, 2019 - Within Watershare, we develop new insights and technologies to quantify the occurrence, the sources, the behavior and the risks of emerging compounds in the water cycle. EuSeME (Europe-wide Sewage analysis to Monitor Emerging drug problems) is a project funded by the European Union’s Justice Programme’s Drugs Policy Initiatives. EuSeME aims to further develop Wastewater-Based Epidemiology (WBE) as an early warning system to monitor emerging drug problems across Europe. WBE is now an established approach in monitoring the consumption of a selection of illicit drugs. However, WBE can also become a valuable source of information about new drug-related threats, such as consumption of new psychoactive substances (NPS), licit and illicit opioids, as well as new trends in drug use (e.g., crack cocaine and cannabis).
