Water JPI Joint Calls

The Water JPI provides funding via competitive Joint Calls for transnational collaborative water RDI projects.

To date, four Joint Calls have been launched (2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017) including two calls with support of the European Commission as part of the Horizon 2020 ERA-NETs Cofund WaterWorks2014 & WaterWorks2015 and two calls implemented within the Coordination and Support Actions WatEUr and IC4Water.

  • 2013 Pilot Call: Emerging Water Contaminants (budget: €9.7 million; 7 projects funded)
  • 2015 Joint Call: Developing technological solutions for services for water distribution and measurement, wastewater treatment and reuse, desalination, floods and droughts (budget: €15.2 million, 16 projects funded)
  • 2016 Joint Call with the FACCE JPI: Improving water use efficiency and reducing soil and water pollution for a sustainable agriculture (budget €18 million, 21 projects funded)
  • 2017 Joint Call : Water resource management in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) – launched on 11 October 2017 - expected budget: €8.55 million; pre-porposals under evaluation

Funded projects are expected to have the following impacts:

  • Enable multi-national, collaborative RDI projects addressing questions relating to the water challenges faced by European society
  • Promote multi-disciplinary work and encourage proposals with fundamental and/or applied approaches
  • Stimulate mobility of researchers within the consortia and enhance collaborative research and innovation during the projects’ life and beyond
  • Support the development of innovative technological solutions and services for the implementation of EU water policy

The research outputs of the funded projects have yet to be assessed. As projects are still in progress or just starting, the follow-up and impact assessment will be a major next step going forward.

The Water JPI is planning to launch a new Joint Transnational Call:

  • 2018: Closing the water cycle gap - improving sustainable water resources management as part of the ERA-NET Cofund WaterWorks2017. More information on the 2018 Joint Call webpage.
