LOGO WaterWorks2015 Stepping up EU research and innovation cooperation in the water area


In 2016, the Water JPI launched a Joint Call in the frame of the ERA-NET Cofund WaterWorks2015 to support research on the sustainable management of water resources in agriculture, forestry and freshwater aquaculture sectors.
Supported by 25 national / regional funding organisations from 22 countries, this call was co-funded by the European Commission and covered the following challenges:

  • Challenge – 1: Increasing the efficiency and resilience of water uses
  • Challenge – 2: Monitoring and reducing soil and water pollution
  • Challenge – 3: Integrating social and economic dimensions into the sustainable management and governance of water resources

The joint call was launched on the 16th of February 2016.

The Kick-off meeting of the projects was held in Stockholm (Sweden) on the 6th April 2017

The online booklet  of the funded projects was created in collaboration with the coordinators and the contact points of Communication and Dissemination activities. The booklet gives access a wide range of information for each funded project.

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.
