Water JPI 2017 Joint Call - Water Challenges for Changing World


The Water JPI 2017 Joint Call aims to enable transnational, collaborative research, development and innovation projects addressing questions relating to the water challenges faced by society with focus on Water Resource Management in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Information about the call is given below in the Call description.

Scope of the 2017 Joint Call

The 2017 Joint Call will pool Research and Innovation (R&I) efforts from countries participating in the Water JPI. The scope of the Joint Call was defined in accordance with the principles of the Water JPI Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), as follows:

  • Proposals may focus on transitional waters; those on marine systems will not be eligible;
  • All societal forms of water use are within the scope of the call;
  • All aquatic ecosystems subject to impacts as described under Challenge-1 are within the scope of the call.


 General Eligibility Criteria

All proposals must conform to all of the general eligibility criteria listed below:

  • Only proposals submitted by transnational consortia will be eligible;
  • Each consortium must be composed of at least a minimum of three eligible partners that request funding from participating Funding Partner Organisations from three different countries
  • Proposals must be submitted by Universities and other higher education institutions, public research institutions, private non-profit organisations, and private companies, according to National Regulations (Section III.5 – National/Regional Regulations). The relevant National/Regional participation rules apply to each partner in relation to the corresponding Funding Partner Organisation (FPO).
  • Proposals must be received before the deadlines;
  • Proposals must meet all the formal criteria (submitted electronically, respect page limits and number/type of attachments allowed, written in English language);
  • Topics of the proposals must be fully relevant to the scope of the call;
  • The requested total budget cannot exceed 1.5 M€ (per proposal);
  • Duration of projects must range between 24 to 36 months;
  • A participant in a proposal is defined as i) a principal investigator that requests funds on behalf of his/her  applicant organisation/institution/company or ii) a principal investigator that contributes with own funds to the proposal;
  • A Consortium Coordinator can only participate in the proposal he/she is coordinating (i.e. if the principal investigator is the coordinator of a proposal, he/she cannot participate in any other proposal, neither as a coordinator nor as a partner);
  • The Consortium Coordinator must be eligible to be funded by one of the Funding Partner Organisations;
  • Researchers from the Funding Partner Organisations cannot apply to this call.

Eligibility of international research institutions

As the Joint Research Centre (JRC) is a European Commission in-house science service, funded by the European's Framework Programme for research and innovation, Horizon 2020, the JRC can apply to a call launched by the Water JPI following the rules below:

  • The JRC can participate in a proposal as a partner. Coordinating the proposal is not possible, since they do not “belong” to any Funding Partner Organisation (FPO) country;
  • They will have to participate at their own expenses (as in Framework Programmes and Horizon 2020) (they are not, as stated above, an eligible institution for any of the FPOs);
  • They will not count in the "three different organisations" rule from three different FPO countries for eligibility purposes.
