2016 Water JPI Workshop for the Alignment of on-going projects in the field of Emerging Pollutants (30/11/2016 - Vienna)

The 1st Workshop for the Alignment of On-going Projects was organized on 30th November 2016 at the Geological Survey of Austria in Vienna (Austria). The purpose of the workshop was to facilitate the progress in the alignment of projects through exploring collaborations and synergies for common objectives, identifying stakeholders and discussing how to better target them, identifying gaps in the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) of the Water JPI and suggesting research needs and topics for work plans, agendas, calls, etc.

The topic of the 2013 Water JPI Pilot Call – “Emerging pollutants, including pathogens” – was selected as the topic of the first workshop, providing an opportunity to encourage synergies between a variety of project researchers in this field. The topics of the invited projects included water treatment and reuse, water management, water quality analysis and monitoring, modelling, risk assessment, microplastics and nanomaterials in water. A total of 20 projects (5 from the 2013 Water JPI Pilot Call, 7 from the 2015 Water JPI Joint Call, 8 national funded projects) attended the workshop together with the Water JPI members. The workshop included keynote presentations, a poster session, break-out groups on different topics and plenary discussions.
