Pre-announcement: Water JPI 2018 Joint Call “Closing the Water Cycle Gap – Improving Sustainable Management of Water Resources”

The Water JPI will soon open its 5th Joint Call within the ERA-NET Cofund program WaterWorks2017. This joint call aims to address research and innovation to support the implementation of EU water policy, on the thematic area “Closing the Water Cycle Gap” of the Water JPI Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA).

Scope of the Water JPI 2018 Joint Call

In many regions, it may be difficult to reconcile water supply and demand both in terms of quantity and quality. The aim of the RDI actions under this theme is, therefore, to bridge the gap in “supply–demand” by enabling the sustainable management of water resources.

WaterWorks2017 will be implemented through the Water JPI 2018 Joint Call for transnational collaborative projects on Research & Innovation, in particular on SRIA - Theme 5 “Closing the Water Cycle Gap – Improving Sustainable Water Resources Management”.

The following two themes are targeted in this thematic area:

  • Enabling sustainable management of water resources; and
  • Strengthening socio-economic approaches to water management

The Water JPI 2018 Joint Call will be funded by 21 Funding Partner Organisations (including the ANR) from 19 countries and with the support of the European Commission.

The provisional list of participating countries and funding partner organisation can be found using this link.
