Joint Call 2015 - WaterWorks 2014

WaterWorks2014 Stepping up EU research and innovation cooperation in the water area

The ERA-NET Cofund WaterWorks2014 was launched on March 2, 2015 in support of the Water JPI. It is funded by the EC under Horizon 2020. WaterWorks2014 aims at tackling European water challenges through the development of transnational and trans-disciplinary research and innovation actions. WaterWorks2014 addresses the specific challenge of integrating the efforts and Strategic Agendas of many European Water Research and Innovation Funding Organisations. WaterWorks2014 benefits researchers, policy-makers, water authorities, utility operators, industry, farmers, and citizens by developing new solutions in the water domain.

Note: A procedure intended for coordinators of RD funded projects was developed by the Water JPI for requests of extension of a RD project duration, and is available here

The Kick-off meeting of the projects was held in Rome on 18 May 2016.

The online booklet of the funded projects was created in collaboration with the coordinators and the contact points of Communication and Dissemination activities. The booklet structure allow to access a wide range of informations for each funded project.

The Mid-term Evaluation Meeting of RDI Projects was held in Larnaca, Cyprus on 8 May 2018

The 16 projects funded under the 2015 JPI call are meeting in Larnaca for their mid-term review.  The project presentations are available here.

Events and results


The event is organized within the framework of the WaterJPI project “WE-NEED - WatEr NEEDs, Availability, Quality and Sustainability”.
The goal of WE-NEED is to develop new management strategies to assist in the sustainable use of two key components of the groundwater resource: pumping wells, used to obtain water for drinking purposes, and natural springs, typically employed for crop irrigation as well as for recreational use.
The academic institutions involved in the project are Politecnico di Milano (Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering), Weizmann Institute of Science (Dept. of Earth and Planetary Sciences), Universidade de Aveiro (Dept. of Biology) and Universitat Polytècnica De Catalunya (Dept. of Geotechnical Engineering and Geo-Sciences).

In the final workshop, all project partners will report about the results of their research in the context of WE-NEED.
The program of the event also includes invited talks on topics related with the project research issues and a poster session in which PhD students working in the area of “Flow and Transport Processes in Po-rous/Fractured Media” are encouraged to present and discuss their current research.
