Cofunded by the European Union

The Water4All deliverables recently submitted to the European Commission are now available on the website of the programme. These deliverables give more information on the progress made by the partnership in the implementation of its different activities.

  • Terms of Reference

This document defines the general goal and structure of the Water4All Partnership. It also sets out the roles and responsibilities of its governance bodies. It finally provides guidance on how the work will be undertaken and reported.

  • Plan for Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation

This document provides guidelines on the way Water4All will go about communication, dissemination and exploitation in order to enable the global outreach of results as well as their uptake by potential end-users. This deliverable contains information on Water4All’s editorial line, the key messages to be communicated, the types of audiences addressed, the main tools and channels to be used, and the indicators to be followed for evaluating progress towards the communication, dissemination and exploitation objectives set out by the Partnership.

  • The Data Management Plan 

This deliverable describes, how the data generated (during the Water4All partnership ) will be organized, stored and shared. It covers issues related to both personal and scientific data.

  • Outlook of existing financial / development programmes

This biannual deliverable is an update on the financial programmes for water investments; a perspective on water development and innovation.
The outlook is part of the demonstration activities included in Water4All’s Pillar D aimed at connecting innovators to development/investment programmes to support an enabling environment for a wider and faster implementation of water innovations. 
The first report is a review of the main studies assessing the perspectives of investments in water in the European Union. The second report takes stock of the challenges presented in the previous one and continues with mapping the main financial opportunities available for water innovations from idea to market uptake and scaleup. 

  • First monitoring report

This report presents the information given in the common and harmonized format of the “Partnership fiche” required by the European Commission (EC) in preparation of the biennial monitoring report (BMR).
The monitoring activity relies on the systematic collection of data on specified indicators. It also gives the opportunity to follow the progress of the tasks monitored and to improve its development if necessary.

The Water4All Partnership - Water Security for the Planet - is a funding programme for scientific research in freshwater. It aims to tackle water challenges to face climate change, help to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and boost the EU’s competitiveness and growth.

It is co-funded by the European Union within the frame of the Horizon Europe programme (a key funding programme for research and innovation). The Partnership duration is for seven years from 2022.

The Water4All objective is to enable water security at a large scale and in the long term. Its goal is also to tackle water issues in a holistic frame. 

All forms of life on earth need water. All human activities operate with this resource. Water is part of our everyday life. It is also integrated within urban and countryside landscapes. It is one of the most valuable elements we share with plants and animals.

These simple facts must be kept in mind to understand the Water4All ambition.

This resource is weakened in many places due to climate changes, and human habits. We know that we can improve the way we use water. Everyone has a role to play and especially the scientific research community.

Scientific research is the heart of the Partnership as It is a powerful tool to improve knowledge on preserving, restoring, and managing this essential resource. 

International cooperation is also needed as water has no borders on Earth and runs from one country to another.

Water4All brings together a broad and cohesive group of 90 partners from 33 countries in the European Union and beyond. This consortium gathers partners from the whole water Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) chain.
