As part of its strategic activities, the Water4All Partnership keeps on promoting collaboration with other initiatives. From the very beginning of Water4All, a particular attention is being paid to strengthen collaborations and to implement concrete actions with other European co-funded Partnerships and Horizon Europe Missions, such as the Mission “Restoring our Ocean and Waters”.
Although the Partnership scheme does not foresee the launch of joint transnational calls for research project proposals, the European Commission encourages Partnerships to implement joint actions to enable the sharing of information on innovative tools and solutions (e.g., knowledge hubs, clustering workshops), to foster synergies for the sharing of key lessons learned or good practices, and to ensure the full complementarity of activities.
A permanent dialogue exists for instance between Water4All, Biodiversa+ and Sustainable Blue Economy Partnership coordination teams to share experiences and stay informed about strategic and scientific activities.
Water4All is exchanging with the EcoDaLLi living lab system on the Danube River to identify synergies. This project is funded by the Mission “Restoring our Oceans and Waters” and its objective is to centralise Danube governance structures to support the uptake of innovations for improved ecological restoration, protection and preservation of the Danube basin and its delta.
Water4All is also taking part in a Synergies Working Group created in the framework of the European Partnership ERA4Health. Water4All was invited to comment on the strategic research agenda of the future One Health AMR partnership aiming to address the antimicrobial resistance challenge.
Last but not least, Water4All integrated the Advisory Board of the new CSA “PRIMA4FUTURE” and the Advisory Board of the CSA “FOODPathS” for the preparation of the European Partnership on Sustainable Food Systems. The first meeting gathering the FOODPathS Advisory Board will be held in Rome on 27 June 2023, and Water4All will be represented by its vice-Chair, Miguel Angel Gilarranz.
