Boosting Research & Innovation in the Water Sector: The Impact of EU-funded actions

This side event - as part of the Porto Water Innovation Week - will bring together water-related EU funded actions to discuss innovation in the water sector and address the different aspects and challenges of maximising its impacts. Stakeholders participating to different EU programmes and initiatives will share their achievements and experiences. They will highlight key enabling factors and barriers for research and innovation actions to reach the market, as well as to support policy making. Other relevant stakeholders such as, investors, regulators, policy makers, innovation hubs, industrial partners and SMEs will join the discussion and bring forward their views and perspectives. The event is organised by the European Commission's Directorate General for Research and Innovation and the Executive Agency for SMEs (EASME) in collaboration with the EIP Water.
