EU Water Innovation Conference
Zaragoza, Spain
EU Water Innovation Conference

This will be the 5th EIP Water Conference,  following the successful events in Brussels (2013), Barcelona (2014), Leeuwarden (2016) and Porto (2017), and will build upon the European Innovation Partnership (EIP Water)’s efforts so far to foster innovation in the water sector and overcome the main existing barriers.

At the same time, it is a stepping stone into the future, as the current EIP Water is planned to end in 2020, and it will likely be followed by new actions to address water-related challenges, secure enhanced compliance with the EU water acquis and foster the research-policy interface, whilst strengthening partnerships for joint efforts.

The overall aim of this conference is to raise awareness about the need and urgency to improve water management across the European Union towards a water-smart society, take stock of recent European Commission’s policy assessments and of research and innovation results and outcomes, as well as to promote the exchange of best practices and innovative approaches at the technical, governance and policy levels.

The specific regional objective of the Water Innovation Conference is to support the regional EBRO2030 strategic agenda for sustainable development with the focus on the Agenda 2030, and to increase knowledge about the funding and management of European water policies. In addition, to analyse different approaches for public-private collaborations in water in Europe.
