Deadline dates: 21 February 2024 17:00:00 Brussels time ; 17 September 2024 17:00:00 Brussels time

In line with the European Green Deal’s zero pollution ambition, successful proposals will contribute to protecting water quality by managing urban water pollution, and consequently also protecting biodiversity and the quality of aquatic ecosystems, as addressed by several impacts under the Destination ‘Clean environment and zero pollution’. Projects results are expected to contribute to all of the following expected outcomes:

  • Enhance urban water quality with a view of providing better guidance for policy making and prioritisation by developing integrated urban water quality monitoring management plans;
  • Sound, safer and risk-based urban water quality management plans supported by enhanced holistic monitoring, advanced novel methods and digital solutions, modelling and evidence-based scenarios;
  • Increase uptake of digital tools in the water sector to support water management decisions for all stakeholders.
