IC4WATER focuses in particular on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) related to water challenges for implementing the Water JPI Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda (SRIA 2.0). It will be implemented through a Joint Call on “Water resource management in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals” that will be launched on September. Its aim is to encourage transnational collaborative projects on research and innovation to support the implementation of water policies. This call will cover two topics :
National Contact Point (NCP): Nuria Ruiz (ic4watersecretariat(at)agencerecherche.fr).
Call Secretariat : Research Council of Norway (RCN, Norway), e-mail : IC4Watercall(at)rcn.no
Proprosals’ eligibility will be verified at two levels :
a) the general eligibility criteria specific to the Call and
b) the ANR eligibility rules
ALL proposals must conform to the general and national eligibility criteria.
The document concerning the 2017 Joint Call sets out procedures procedure and key information for a successful application. It is essential to read the totality of the Call Announcement, available on the Water JPI website.
