18 Jun 2012

The European Commission proposed on 14 May 2012 a new European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Water. The partnership will bring together all relevant actors across borders and sectors to accelerate the development and uptake of innovative solutions to address water challenges. The partnership will gather all relevant stakeholders, such as the water sector, small and medium sized enterprises, the research community, local governments, water-using industries, and the financial sector. It will focus on urban, rural and industrial water management, and several cross cutting themes.
