Challenges of Contaminants of Emerging Concerns, including Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

To face this challenge in a comprehensive way and to provide multidisciplinary solutions for a safe and clean aquatic ecosystems (freshwater, groundwater, marine), three Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs): Water JPI “Water Challenges for a Changing World”, JPI Oceans “Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans” and JPI AMR “On Antimicrobial Resistance” are jointly acting for strengthening the European Research Area (ERA) in the field of clean and healthy aquatic ecosystems and to leverage untapped potential in the collaboration between the freshwater, marine and health research areas. The three JPIs expect to launch a co-funded transnational and multi-disciplinary call 2020 for research and innovation proposals.

This showcase will enable stakeholders and end-users to present their own challenges, influence and improve the objectives and strategies developed in the call in order to address the most urgent scientific challenges and priorities- in doing so, pave the way for the implementation of a more efficient Water policy.
