The Body of Knowledge on Innovative solutions for Water Scarcity in Southern Europe is about to kick off

Earlier this month four Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) – EIT Food, EIT Climate-KIC, EIT Manufacturing and EIT Raw Materials - supported by the European institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Regional Innovation Scheme - have joined forces with BioAzul to work in an holistic way and bring expertise to enhance knowledge and overcome current barriers to tackle one of the biggest challenges for Southern Europe through innovation.

The project "Innovative solutions for Water Scarcity in Southern Europe" is the result of their commitment, and it will kick off on the 15th April, bringing together 16 experts, to form a Body of Knowledge for this innovative cross KIC initiative. They will work in the next months to deliver challenge Labs for start-ups as to facilitate in this way the transition from idea to business, organize the EIT Water Academy for water scarcity challenge education, including EIT workshops with public bodies and other stakeholders across different regions and communication activities to reach out to citizens and interested stakeholders, engaging in events and media to raise awareness about water scarcity for citizens.
