EU Green Deal knowledge session: opportunities for the Dutch water sector
Following the launch of the European Union (EU) Green Deal Call, the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) with support of the Partners for Water programme is hosting a knowledge session on the process of developing and submitting a proposal for the Green Deal Call on water related issues and within a multisectoral approach. The session focuses on opportunities for the Dutch water sector within the EU Green Deal and will give a clear picture of where to start, what to take into account and how to tackle challenges in the process of developing a proposal for Horizon2020 funding (or future HorizonEurope funding).
The EU Green Deal Call, launched in September 2020, outlines the EUs new strategy for a cleaner, safer, healthier and more sustainable European economy. With funding from Horizon2020 to back this up, this call has opened up a range of opportunities for research and innovation projects, also for the Dutch water sector.
As such, NWP is organising a knowledge session for Dutch water sector organisations actively working on, or interested in, developing a proposal, as well as for Dutch water sector organisations looking for Dutch and/or EU partners to work together on innovative solutions that could fit within the EU Green Deal Call.
After some welcoming words from NWP and Bureau Brussel, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and PNO Consultants will provide short presentations. The session will also allocate some time for a Q&A round so that additional questions can be answered.
Based on the enthusiasm, interest and questions that arise from this session, NWP foresees next steps to collaborate with Dutch parties on developing new ideas and project proposals, and organising matchmaking and follow-up meetings taking into account the challenges in the process of developing proposals for EU funding.
