The European Commission today proposed to boost innovation to deal with water related challenges by creating a European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Water.
The partnership will bring together all relevant actors across borders and sectors, such as the water sector, small and medium sized enterprises, the research
community, local governments, water-using industries, and the financial sector to accelerate the development and uptake of innovative solutions to water
challenges. A Strategic Implementation Plan will be developed with key stakeholders to define the priority areas for action. The EIP on Water will seek to align
the activities and outcomes of existing European, national and regional activities.
