The Water4All partnership started in 2022 under the auspices of the European Union Horizon Europe programme for research and innovation, to concentrate research and innovation on water in Europe and beyond. Water4All’s Vision is to “boost the systemic transformations and changes across the entire research – water innovation pipeline, fostering the matchmaking between problem owners and solution providers for ensuring water security for all in the long term”.
To strengthen the water Research Development and Innovation (RD&I) collaboration, to produce and to share top class water-related knowledge and data, Water4All will launch a series of annual Joint Transnational Calls (JTCs). The topics for the calls will be drawn from the water challenges identified in the Water4All Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda and will pool national financial resources through the participation of ministries, authorities and funding organisations.
In line with the strategic objectives of Water4All, the results of the projects will contribute to the implementation of evidence-based, global, EU and national water management policies and strategies, within the frameworks of the Green Deal, the Water Framework Directive, Just Transition and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Furthermore, governance playing a key role in water challenges, the 2022 Joint Transnational Call will seek for innovative governance models, and enhanced participation of stakeholders in water management issues related to extreme events.
1 – Resilience, adaptation and mitigation to hydroclimatic extreme events
2 – Tools for water management in the context of hydroclimatic extreme events
3 – Improved water governance in the context of hydroclimatic extreme events and international contexts
