International cooperation workshop

Two geographic workshops to develop “RDI International Cooperation for tackling global water challenges” were organised in 2017 as part of the activities to be conducted within the Work Package 6 of the ERA-NET Cofund WaterWorks2015, and the related Task 6.2 on International Cooperation:

These workshops provided the occasion for participants to:

  • Continue the discussions with the countries already contacted under previous activities since the Water JPI creation in order to developing long term partnerships;
  • Develop cooperation with existing international initiatives (e.g. geographical ERA-NETs);
  • Identify possible cooperation models with funding agencies / programme owners.


Based on suggestions and recommendations of the participants in the two workshops, the Water JPI will follow-up by a roadmap on International Cooperation development.
