The Water JPI membership has grown, currently with twenty partner countries and four observers, resulting in a partnership that accounts for 88 per cent of all European public RDI annual expenditure on water issues. One of the main key achievements of the Water JPI, since its approval by the European Member States in December 2011, is the high level of partner involvement in implementing joint transnational calls. 


20 member countries: Austria, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Moldavia, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom

4 observer countries: Belgium, Greece, Hungary, Latvia

The international cooperation dimension of the first implementation actions of the Water JPI include Israel, Norway, the Republic of Moldova and Turkey (full Water JPI members), as well as three additional Horizon 2020 associated countries (Egypt, South Africa, and Tunisia) and two international partners (Canada and Taiwan).

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.
