The European Innovation Partnership on Water - EIP Water in short - is an initiative within the EU 2020 Innovation Union of the European Union.
The EIP Water has taken a look at various kinds of “Water Innovation Hubs” or “Alliances”. The objective is to develop a continuously growing overview of these “hubs”. As a first step we have identified all relevant hubs globally known to us, analysed their publicly available information and categorized them according to various criteria such as their general and geographical focus, their core constituency, their technology stage focus and their activities.
We are pleased to present the result – a first overview of water innovation hubs globally. The overview is expected to grow over time; more hubs will be added, and the already included hubs will be updated regularly.
In order to search the overview of water innovation hubs you may use the following filters:
- Geographical focus, which refers to the region(s) in which the hub is active.
- Activities, i.e. the type of benefits which each hub offers. There are three main activity groups: intelligence tools, services, and policy actions. Each group contains a list of specific activities.
For further clarification of the used terminology and concepts please consult the hubs glossary at the bottom of this page (and at each hub page).
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us in case you wish to add a hub or make us aware of any necessary changes in our overview.
