The LEAKCURE project aimed at the market uptake of a trenchless method of repairing small water pipes leakages applying trenchless technology. This technology does not require leakage detection for leak location since it self-detects the leakage, sealing and permanently curing it.
The high level objective of the LEAKCURE project was to support rapid market penetration, adoption and replication of a breakthrough leak repair technology for water mains distribution networks in Europe.
The project was co-funded by the European Union within the CIP Eco-Innovation initiative of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Program CIP, under grant agreement ECO/10/276697/SI2.595553
