Joint call, "Smart Water Management for Sustainable Society", is now open

The European Interest Group (EIG) CONCERT-Japan is pleased to announce that their 6th joint call, "Smart Water Management for Sustainable Society", is now open and welcoming proposals from interested researchers. Given the critical need globally for developing novel innovative and sustainable solutions to water management challenges capable of withstanding both rapid natural and social change, EIG CONCERT-Japan is hopeful that this call can support research which will ultimately stimulate practical solutions in the area of water sustainability.

The "Smart Water Management for Sustainable Society" call is open to public and private RTD entities, higher education institutions and non-university research organizations based in Japan and several European countries, including Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia and Turkey. Each project consortium should include at least one (1) partner based in Japan, and two (2) or more partners based in different European partner countries.

EIG CONCERT-Japan is an international and multilateral joint funding initiative founded to support and enhance cooperation in science, technology and innovation (STI) research between European countries and Japan. Inclusive and flexible in nature, EIG CONCERT-Japan supports diverse types of collaboration to advance impactful research while simultaneously fostering meaningful international exchange between research communities.
