Brokering environmentally sustainable sanitation for Europe (BESSE)

BESSE is a collaborative effort of academic, professional and non-governmental organisations. It aims to contribute to the Renewed, Sustainable Development Strategy of the European Union through the enhancement of the links between sanitation policy and research on sustainable sanitation development. The project aims to to establish what obstacles are preventing the dissemination of scientific and technical sanitation information; to identify knowledge brokering (communication) methods that will enable the sanitation sectors to overcome these obstacles; to start a learning process on knowledge brokerage in general, as a tool for the socialisation of Scientific and Technological Research (STR).

Research team: Wiebe E. Bijker and Ragna Zeiss
