FLOWERED project , which stands for:
“de-FLuoridation technologies for imprOving quality of WatEr and agRo-animal products along the East African Rift Valley in the context of aDaptation to climate change”  is 3 year project (June 2016 – May 2019), funded by the European Union and  coordinated by the University of Cagliari (Italy).
