WaterWorks2015 held kick-off meeting of funded projects

In 2016, the Water JPI launched a joint call in the frame of the ERA-NET Cofund WaterWorks2015 to support research on the sustainable management of water resources in agriculture, forestry and freshwater aquaculture sectors.

The 21 funded projects under the Water JPI 2016 joint call were presented in Stockholm, Sweden, on 6 April 2017. The projects have a focus on at least one of the following three challenges:

  • Increasing the efficiency and resilience of water uses;
  • Monitoring and reducing soil and water pollution;
  • Integrating social and economic dimensions into the sustainable management and governance of water resources.

The Water JPI 2016 joint call was a successful joint call between the Water JPI and FACCE JPI. The projects are funded by all of the 25 funding partners from 22 countries and the European Commission. The Netherlands participates in 5 of the research projects.
