The Research Executive Agency (REA) is organising in collaboration with the Fundacio Institut Català de Recerca de l'Aigua (ICRA) a cluster event on clean water that will take place on 22 October 2019 in Girona, Spain.

Full agenda and event package are available at the end of the page.

The main objectives of the event are:

  • To showcase the contribution of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSC) Innovative Training Networks (ITN) projects in the field of clean water
  • To enhance synergies among projects
  • To facilitate networking opportunities
  • To get insights in the related policies and raise awareness of further funding opportunities
  • To get feedback for policy.

Representatives from 12 MSCA-ITN projects will participate:

ITN 2014 642904-TreatRec      

ITN 2014 641459-RELIEF              

ITN 2015 675530-ANSWER

The cluster event will be the occasion to promote discussion and collect policy relevant information and data on policy areas related to clean water, one of the biggest environmental challenges our societies have to face.

The event will be structured around project presentations by Project Coordinators and two Early Stage Researchers (ESR) of each project. Two industrial partners will also present research results and provide their feedback about their participation in an ITN. A poster exhibition will be organised for the more recently funded projects.

Several European Commission services (DG EAC, DG RTD, DG ENV) will be involved to frame the policy discussions and present funding opportunities.
