Work Package 1 - Coordination and Management

Leader: ANR (Coordinator)
Months 1-60

Objectives
This Work Package will manage and coordinate IC4WATER, ensure seamless integration between IC4WATER and the Water JPI activities, manage external relations and support the Water JPI management bodies.

All partners will contribute to this Work Package, which will be led by the coordinating partner. Cooperation among partners will be essential for the flexible, smooth, productive running of the project. Cooperation will need to be extended to the wider Water JPI community (i.e. partner countries not taking part in IC4WATER), to the European Commission and to a large number of European and International actors in Water Research, Development and Innovation (RDI). This Work Package will manage the internal flow of the IC4WATER activities and its integration with the core activities of the Water JPI and other supporting EC-funded projects, such as the WaterWorks2014 and WaterWorks2015 ERA-NETs Cofund.

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.
