The Water Joint programming Initiative is implemented through the Coordination and Support Action WatEUr funded by the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, the ERANET Co-Fund WaterWorks 2014 and the Eranet Co-Fund WaterWorks 2015 carried out within the frame of the European Programme Horizon 2020.
A Coordination and Support Action “Supporting international cooperation activities on water” will address water challenges and EU policy priorities in the  water sector within a global perspective.
Thus the Water JPI will implement its activities focused on alignment of research and innovation agendas at European and international level till 2021.

The Implementation Plan for the period 2014-2016 aims at delivering the Water JPI Strategic research and Innovation Agenda while maximizing its societal impact through different instruments which include strategic workshops, exploratory seminars, calls for proposals, the alignment of national water RDI programmes.

Two updates of the Water JPI Implementation Plan will be produced for the period 2017-2019 on the basis of the SRIA 2.0 and for the period 2020-2022 taking into account the SRIA 3.0. The recommendations for the following updated versions of the Implementation Plan will be also based on the outputs of the Task Forces on Interactions with H2020, International Cooperation and Alignment, as well as the outputs of the 2nd Alignment workshop and good practices workshops.

The WATER JPI is a relevant structure for Horizon 2020

Both the Water JPI and Horizon 2020 use public funds to achieve their goals, and enjoy a significant area of synergy in their respective research priorities. The JPI provides a channel for dialogue with the EC on future Horizon 2020 calls. Since its launch, the EC has been very supportive of the Water JPI and a non-voting member of its Governing Board.
