Task Forces are ad hoc teams that consist of voluntary delegates of JPI Water members and are empowered by the Governing Board to deal with specific topics. At present, the Task Force on Alignment consists of representatives from UK (lead), Ireland (co-lead), Germany, Spain, France, Italy and the Netherlands.

The Task force will prepare a Roadmap on Alignment Activities, and will aim at

  • Integrating the work and activities, currently being carried out under the FP7 WatEUr Coordination Support Action (CSA); Horizon 2020 ERA-NET Cofund WaterWorks2014, as well as the proposed Horizon 2020 ERA-NET Cofund WaterWorks2015;
  • Reviewing the Recommendations from the 2014 GPC Working Group Report on Alignment;
  • Identifying areas of common interest to the Water JPI partner, where progress in the alignment can be progressed – as well as mechanisms/instruments on how to progress this;
  • Reviewing and building on the findings of the ERA-Learn, JPI to Co-work and Netwatch;
  • Building on the recommendations from the 1st Workshop on Alignment, which took place in October 2014; and
  • Monitoring progress made in the Alignment of the national Water RDI programs
