Help shape the Water EIP - ChemWater Three - 5 September

The SusChem FP7 project ChemWater will be holding its third workshop next week (5 September) in Brussels. Please note the meeting venue will now be the Brussels offices of Spanish Science and Technology organisation SOST (Española de Ciencia y Tecnología) at Rue du Trone 62. The workshop will further develop the vision for what a water sustainable process industry should look like by 2050 and identify the necessary tools and methodologies needed to realise that vision.
The workshop will focus on those processes, materials and technologies needed to reach the vision that were defined in the previous two ChemWater workshops. Active discussions on allocation of skills, competencies, coordination and funding needed to reach the vision will be discussed focusing on the following topics:
  • Chemical process engineering, reaction and process design
  • Emerging water treatment technologies
  • Identification and development of (nano) materials
The output of the ChemWater project will be directly linked to the forthcoming European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Water, and will provide information to set the priorities for research and innovation in the Strategic Implementation Plan of the EIP and therefore the reference for future calls. The aim of the EIP on Water is to position Europe as the world leader in sustainable water management by boosting innovation.

Participation in the workshop is your chance to bring forward your ideas for research and innovation programmes in this important strategic area and give direction to a roadmap on sustainable water use.
