Back to back with the kick-off of the second Water JPI Knowledge Hub focusing on the UN SDGs, the Water JPI organised a workshop with peer international institutions interested in joint initiatives. Building on several events including two workshops with European initiatives and researchers and two geographical workshops held in 2017, this workshop implemented under the Coordination and Support Action (CSA) IC4WATER aimed at collecting the views of International / non-European initiatives and better understanding the difficulties faced to join JPI activities.

Following a plenary session in the morning, attendees were given the opportunity to take part in group discussions on a) Specific needs for innovation / connection to economic sector, b) Possible Models for Cooperation.

The discussions between Water JPI partners and RDI programme managers and the outcomes of this workshop will inform the overall strategy for developing the Water JPI international network, building on existing connections.
