The European Commission is organising a one day event under the title ‘Water Innovation In Action’ on 24th of January at the CHARLEMAGNE building in Brussels. The event will be an occasion to present 11 new projects, whose aim is to promote innovative solutions for water-related challenges. The projects which have been provided with a €50 million fund by the EC, involve 179 partners from research organisations and private companies (more than 70 partners are SMEs). The event will also be an opportunity to discuss the key challenges of the water-related initiatives at the European and International level and explore the possibilities offered by the leverage of different funding instruments (Horizon 2020, structural funds, etc.).
