A new joint transnational call for projects will open on 17 February 2020 to encourage research and innovation projects regarding the risks for health and the environment caused by pollutants and pathogens present in the water resources.
The call will support projects that establish integrated and cross-sectoral approaches for risk-management combining the research areas of contaminants of emerging concerns (CECs), pathogens and antimicrobial resistance. The whole water cycle, from the source through the river basins and eventually to the estuaries and oceans, has to be considered. The projected call budget is approximately 25 million Euro (co-funded by European Commission).
This Joint Transnational Call aims to make the research communities in the freshwater, marine and the health sectors work together and create synergies for joint approaches.
