Work Package 5

Joint actions on UN SDGs

Leader: RCN
Months: 1-60

This Work Package will implement the Water JPI SRIA 2.0 (2016) in the light of the UN SDGs (Goal 6 dedicated to Water challenges and other associated targets) which will apply to all countries (in contrast to the Millennium Sustainable Goals which targeted developing countries). Work Package 5’s objectives include:

  1. Improving water services to European and World citizens,
  2. Supporting the development and the implementation of Water policies,
  3. Sustaining European scientific/technological leadership, making water economic sector more competitive, and
  4. Developing a flagship joint funding activity between the members of the JPI Water, international cooperation partners and international programmes of strategic importance for the EU.

Some IC4WATER partners decided to contribute on these specific activities and will provide additional resources for implementing these joint activities (funding of transnational RDI projects). Some associated International Partners are also interested and are contributing to the launch of concrete cooperation on a dedicated topic of major concern.

5.1 The UN SDGs in the context of the Water JPI Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda
