Cofunded by the European Union

Co-funded European Partnerships are facing challenges in defining and executing additional activities beyond joint calls (“in-kind” contributions). In an effort to resolve these challenges, the European Commission and ERA-LEARN are organising a webinar on this topic.

Date: 24/01/2024

Time: 9:30 – 13:00 CET

Objectives:

The aim of the webinar is to explain the concept of “additional activities” with a short presentation by the European Commission on the general principles, a clear practical example from a Co-funded European Partnerships that has already been successful in executing these additional activities and two simulations.

In addition, during the webinar there will be time to discuss (common) challenges that the Co-funded European Partnerships are facing and their specific experiences, so they can exchange good practices and learn from each other.

Target Audience:

Representatives of the Co-funded European Partnerships and other stakeholders that are interested in the topic. Coordinators of the Co-funded European Partnerships will receive a specific link to interact and join the discussion. The other participants will join in “listening mode” and can use the chat to make comments.

Format:

Webinar (online)

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.
