Joint Programming Initiative
“Water challenges for a changing world” 

Welcome to the website of the Water JPI aiming to tackle the ambitious challenge of “Achieving Sustainable Water Systems for a Sustainable Economy in Europe and Abroad”.

Specific challenges have been identified in the economic, ecological, societal and technological domains. Objectives address the need for increased coordination in European research, development and innovation (RDI), and address issues such as user participation, attaining targets in the coordinated use of funds and progress in the integration of RDI agendas and activities.

The research questions are cast in five axes:

  • maintaining ecosystem sustainability;
  • developing safe water systems for the citizens;
  • promoting competitiveness in the water industry;
  • implementing a water-wise bio-based economy;
  • closing the water cycle gap.
