Call on knowledge transfer of research on Aquatic Pollutants

The three Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) are pleased to announce an additional call for proposals on Scientific Networking and Transfer Projects.
Update: 20 April 2020 - CORONA COVID-19
We would like to inform you that due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic the deadline of submission of the call on knowledge transfer of research on Aquatic Pollutants is postponed. The new deadline is 18th May 2020 17:00 CEST. For further questions please contact the Call secretariat.
The national regulations have been updated to reflect an update in the regulations of Sweden (SRC).
The call is addressing research and development for supporting knowledge transfer, scientific networking, and public engagement based on the AquaticPollutants 2020 Joint Transnational Call projects. This Transfer Project call is a novelty for the JPIs and emphasizes the high transfer orientation of the topic. The Transfer Project will be part of the AquaticPollutants projects’ family and accompany its research and innovation projects. The objective is to realize a better and wider dissemination, develop new innovative methods to support the transfer of research and the uptake of results into the public and administrative sector, policy, industry or economy. This will lead to a greater and focused impact and increase the awareness of the research projects’ outcomes. 
Moreover, cross-cutting issues that address all transnational projects alike, can be dealt with and lead to a better alignment of the three participating JPIs.
The projected call budget is approximately 1.05 million Euro.
