EIP Water

European Innovation Partnerships (EIP) aim to speed up innovations that contribute to solving societal challenges, enhance Europe’s competitiveness and contribute to job creation and economic growth. EIPs help to pool expertise and resources by bringing together public and private actors at EU, national and regional level, combining supply- and demand-side measures. The European Innovation Partnership on Water is one of five EIP’s, all of which are initiatives within the EU 2020 Innovation Union.

The EIP Water aims to remove barriers by advancing and leveraging existing solutions. Its implementation has started in May 2013 with the main objective to initiate and promote collaborative processes for change and innovation in the water sector across the public and private sector, non-governmental organisations and the general public. This is mainly done via the establishment of Action Groups.

The EIP Water facilitates the development of innovative solutions to address major European and global water challenges. At the same time, the EIP Water supports the creation of market opportunities for these innovations, both inside and outside of Europe.

The EIP Water sets out to facilitate: innovative solutions for sustainable water management, sustainable growth and job creation; visibility and exposure; network opportunities; use of EIP Water tools; policy development.

EIP WATER is an initiative in which the partners of POWER project have been very much involved. It identifies five thematic and three cross-cutting priorities which it is believed will have the most important impact on the future of water in our society whilst recognising that Smart technology will play an important role in all the aforementioned areas.

POWER project reflects the importance of four of the eight priorities of EIP WATER and is the direct result of work that began four years ago with the ambition to confront these challenges from a new perspective.
