The Water Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) aims to enhance collaboration between national research programmes in Europe.
Water challenges cannot be successfully tackled through the isolated effort of individual national research and innovation programmes.
This initiative aims at developing a coordinated and strategic approach to public national and regional research and innovation funding in Europe.
The Water JPI has developed its Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda which is being updated regularly. More information about the Water JPI SRIA can be found on the Water JPI Website.
