News European Innovation Partnership on water (EIP)

DG Environment organised a consultation workshop for the candidate European Innovation Partnership on water (EIP). The workshop was held on October 20th in Brussels. It was attended by more than 100 people in a fully-packed room. The workshop was opened by Peter Gammeltoft, Head of Unit for Water. The goal of the meeting was to get first feedbacks from water stakeholders on the governance, objectives and targets of the future EIP. 

WssTP strongly supports the EIP and made a clear statement during the session: the European Commission should aim at setting an efficient partnership for water. For WssTP, a successful EIP should come from the alignment and cooperation of existing water related initiatives that includes WssTP, ACQUEAU, EUREAU, the Water JPI and SUSCHEM as stated in our Position Paper on “Boosting Research and Innovation Fundings for Water”.
