EurAqua has updated its Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) during 2023. The agenda was first published in June 2019, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary event of the network.
EurAqua’s SRIA outlines water Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) areas for which enhanced collaboration will be sought. It is built upon the RDI priorities of EurAqua’s members, and it is meant to be the guiding action plan for EurAqua in the coming years. This agenda is a living document as it will be continuously updated accounting for EurAqua members’ changing priorities whilst taking into account emerging water challenges and latest scientific developments.
The priority research and innovation themes identified in the agenda are:
1.1. Ensuring water resources availability and sharing water resources
1.2. Managing flood risk
1.3. Managing the risks on droughts and water scarcity
2. Protecting and restoring freshwater ecosystems
3. Increasing circularity of water resources
4. Addressing water quality challenges
5. Towards integrated water governance
6. Innovation in monitoring and assessment
The priority themes, the specific contents and implementation of the agenda are discussed in annual Management Board Meetings and updated if deemed necessary.
