Collaborations with other networks

JPI “Water Challenges for a Changing World" — EurAqua collaboration
EurAqua is a member of the Stakeholder Advisory Group of the Joint Programming Initiative “Water Challenges for a Changing World".

PEER — EurAqua collaboration
The Partnership for European Environmental Research (PEER) and EurAqua have several fields of interest in common. There are also close institutional links between the two networks: five of the seven PEER members are also member of EurAqua.

PEER and EurAqua decided to intensify their collaboration in order to further benefit from the potential synergies and complementarities. This is essential especially for the relations with the European Commission, DG Research, DG Environment, The Joint Research Centre (JRC), The European Environment Agency (EEA) and other international bodies in the field of Environment. This was formalised in a Letter of Intent in which they agreed to:

  • Share expertise and resources in cooperative research and development activities and their applications, as well as in prospective activities and scientific brainstorming;
  • Participate in knowledge transfer through cooperative demonstration projects, short courses and symposia;
  • Encourage the exchange of research personnel between their institutes;
  • Report on the collaborative research in the manner agreed for each specific project.

The collaboration is coordinated by a Coordination Committee consisting of both chairs and secretaries and up to two selected experts from each network.

WssTP — EurAqua collaboration
Several EurAqua members are members of the Water Supply and Sanitation Technology Platform (WssTP), too. At the EurAqua Board meeting in April 2012 the decision was taken that WssTP is a permanent invited guest to the Management Board meeting of EurAqua.
