It took place, yesterday, the Round Table on the Alignment of EU-China Funding Schemes and Opportunities in the Water Sector. During more than 2 hours, more than 60 participants, from Europe and China, had the opportunity to comment the draft inventory study and to express their final comments and suggestions for improvement of the final version of the document.
With the main purpose of contributing to the alignment of funding opportunities for business, research and innovation between Europe and China in the Water Sector, and bearing in mind some instruments that are currently in course or being designed, as Horizon Europe or Water4All, this Round Table was also a crucial moment for identifying possible areas for consortia, between European and Chinese partners, to be created in order to apply for upcoming calls in Europe and China.
The final version of this study is foreseen for June 2021, as an output of the LOT5 horizontal activities under the Partnership Instrument funding attributed to CEWP.
