2017 Water JPI Exploratory Workshop (2-3/11/2017 - Dublin)

 

The Water JPI held the second Exploratory Workshop on the 2nd – 3rd of November in Dublin. The workshop was focused on the Water JPI Strategic & Research Innovation Agenda Theme 1 – Improving Ecosystem Sustainability and Human Well-being.

The aim of the workshop was to further discuss and develop the RDI needs under the Water JPI SRIA Theme 1. Outputs from this workshop will inform the upcoming SRIA update. Theme 1 of the Water JPI Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda is relevant to the Research Agenda of the BiodivERsA initiative, and therefore BiodivERsA were represented by a Speaker and funded project presentations.
