WaterWorks2015 workshop: common vision and adapting strategies of the Water JPI and FACCE JPI

This WaterWorks2015* workshop took place in Bonn, Germany on 21 June 2017. The aim of the workshop was to receive input for updating the Strategic Research (and Innovation) Agenda (SRIA/ SRA) of both JPIs and to align work as much as possible. Eighteen expert from all over Europe, as well as members of the Water and the FACCE JPI gathered to develop a framework and an action plan arising from discussion on the common visions of the two JPIs. They discussed the following issues:

  • the JPI visions
  • the Strategic Research (and Innovation) Agenda (SRIA/ SRA) of both JPIs including commonalities and differences
  • research and development needs
  • possible synergy activities and shared strategies

Future collaboration between the two JPIs are planned.

*: The ERA-NET Cofund WaterWorks2015 is a collaboration between the Joint Programming Initiatives Water JPI ('Water Challenges for a Changing World') and FACCE-JPI ('Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change').
