The project summary

The Water4All Partnership aims at enabling water security for all on the long term through boosting systemic transformations and changes across the entire research – water innovation pipeline, fostering the matchmaking between problem owners and solution providers. It gathers more than 70 partners, R&I funders, environment ministries, local authorities, European, national and regional-scale networks, research performing organisations. It will collaborate with other relevant R&I initiatives. Water4All proposes a portfolio of multi-national, cross-sectoral activities, targeting a variety of actors, intending to generate the following outputs:

  • Strengthen the water R&I collaboration at European and international levels, across more than 28 countries, notably through 6 Joint Transnational Calls
  • Coordinate and leverage the activities of the Water R&I community
  • Support and promote the demonstration and access to market of innovative solutions
  • Produce, share and better communicate water-related knowledge & data, from local to global scales
  • Enhance talent development of water R&I professionals
  • Foster capacity development and life-long training of water policy-makers, stakeholders and civil society
  • Design & implement approaches for participatory development of innovation
