Water Joint Programming Initiative

Water challenges cannot be successfully tackled through the isolated effort of individual national research and innovation programmes.

This EU initiative aims at developing a coordinated and strategic approach to public national and regional research and innovation funding in Europe.

The Water JPI is dedicated to tackling the ambitious challenge of achieving sustainable water systems for a sustainable economy in Europe and abroad. This will be realised through a multi-disciplinary approach, which includes economic, ecological, societal and technological considerations.

The EPA is a partner of the Water JPI (www.waterjpi.eu) and is involved in the related EC-funded supporting projects: WaterWorks2014, WaterWorks2015, WaterWorks2017 ERAnet COFUNDs and IC4Water Coordination Support Action.

The Water JPI has developed its Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda which is being updated regularly (Read more about the Water JPI SRIA)
