The coordination and support action PIANO (Policies, Innovation And Network for enhancing Opportunities for China-Europe water cooperation), funded by the EU programme for research and innovation Horizon 2020 will present its main achievements in Brussels on 15 May 2018.
The project conducted a comprehensive landscaping (mapping, scoring and ranking) of European and Chinese water innovative technological solutions on the five research areas focused by the project: agricultural, municipal, river basin, industrial water management, water for energy.
It has also identified drivers, barriers and possible strategies for European SMEs to improve business exchange in the Chinese water market and elaborated a shared Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) which identifies need and priorities in the EU-China cooperation in the water sector and sets out the direction of future collaborative actions engaging public and private partnerships.
Results, policy messages and further initiatives will be discussed with representatives of the European Commission, the China-Europe Water Platform, EU water-related networks and supporting business agencies next 15 May at ENEA’s premises, rue de Namur 72
