PILOT CALL: SEVEN PROJECTS RECOMMENDED FOR FUNDING

Seven transnational collaborative research projects in the field of water quality have been recommended for funding. Projects respond to the 2013 Water JPI Pilot Call, with a total budget of € 9 million. This Call for proposals focused on “Emerging water contaminants-anthropogenic pollutants and pathogens”. Following the evaluation of the received proposals by an International Panel the consortia recommended for funding are:

The WATER JPI is a relevant structure for Horizon 2020

Both the Water JPI and Horizon 2020 use public funds to achieve their goals, and enjoy a significant area of synergy in their respective research priorities. The JPI provides a channel for dialogue with the EC on future Horizon 2020 calls. Since its launch, the EC has been very supportive of the Water JPI and a non-voting member of its Governing Board.
