(EXTENDED) Call for entrepreneurs developing solutions to tackle Water Scarcity in Southern Europe
EIT Food together with Climate KIC, Digital and Manufacturing KICs, Athena RC, Bioazul and TuDelft , are leading a multiannual and multidisciplinary programme designed to alleviate water scarcity in Southern Europe. We work together considering water scarcity as a thematic field from agrifood to manufacturing.
The main objective of the programme is to ease the transition to a water saving economy across Southern Europe and to contribute, in the long run, to reduce Europe’s water consumption, wastage and pollution. This is achieved by targeting different stakeholders, from policy makers to business, industry leaders and citizens through different actions.
This call is framed within in InnoWise Scale activities of the Water Scarcity Project. The InnoWise Scale activities have been designed to enable agile water management in different sectors, optimise and match water supply and demand, and foster climate change readiness while fostering innovation and entrepreneurship, especially in the Mediterranean region, namely Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Malta Portugal and Spain.
• Networking sessions with potential end-users
• Sectoral competitions, with the possibility to implement a demo site at the end of the period with potential end-users based in Southern European countries.
