KICK-OFF MEETING OF THE SEVEN PILOT CALL PROJECTS

The kick-off meeting of the seven water research projects funded by the first joint call of the Water Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) took place in Brussels on the 11th March 2015. This meeting involved representatives of the funding ministries and national agencies of the member states, which funded this joint call, and many researchers involved in the activities of the projects FRAME, MOTREM, PROMOTE, METAWATER, PERSIST, StARE, TRACE on the common topic of “Emerging water contaminants – anthropogenic pathogens and pollutants. This event was also a good opportunity for welcoming the researchers involved in these seven projects into the Water JPI community, networking, and for strengthening the science and policy interface within the Water JPI,  which is also based on the fundamental concept of co-production of new knowledge on the topics identified in its jointly elaborated Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda. The presentations made during this kick-off meeting are available here

PILOT CALL: SEVEN PROJECTS RECOMMENDED FOR FUNDING

Seven transnational collaborative research projects in the field of water quality have been recommended for funding. Projects respond to the 2013 Water JPI Pilot Call, with a total budget of € 9 million. This Call for proposals focused on “Emerging water contaminants-anthropogenic pollutants and pathogens”. Following the evaluation of the received proposals by an International Panel the consortia recommended for funding are:

These seven projects will start after the establishment of a Consortium Agreement. Grants will be received from the national funding institutions supporting each partner in the consortium, according to national rules. These projects will be funded by the following Water JPI partners: BMBF (Germany),  MINECO (Spain),  AKA (Finland),  ONEMA (France),  RCN (Norway),  Innovations Fonden - former DCSR (Denmark),  MIUR (Italy),  FCT (Portugal),  EPA (Ireland),  CDTI (Spain) and  RPF (Cyprus). Funding decisions will be made by these organisations later this year.
