BeWater concertation workshop
Lessons learnt from water projects of international cooperation and synchronisation with funding agencies
1 and 2 March 2017, Brussels, Belgium
As part of the BeWater project, Europe for Business Ltd is organising a concertation workshop entitled ‘Lessons learnt from water projects of international cooperation and synchronisation with funding agencies’. The workshop will be held on 1-2 March 2017 in Brussels, Belgium.
The main objectives of the workshop are to bring together and enhance dialogue between the coordinators of international cooperation (projects) and the owners of funding programmes (national and regional agencies) and to stimulate the national and regional funding agencies to share experiences and practices in order to facilitate the emergence of common positions and encourage the synchronisation of support instruments to international cooperation in climate change research.
The concertation workshop will be organised over two days. The first day of the workshop will be open to participation by all projects representatives and by representatives of the national funding agencies. Participation during the second day is restricted to the funding agencies’ representatives in order to stimulate a more in-depth discussion among the funding agencies to identify future joint challenges and to generally improve the national and international mechanisms to support research cooperation.
Based on the discussions with representatives of the funding agencies, the expected outcomes of the workshop will be a report summarising key challenges and conclusions to be dealt with at policy level to support instruments to international cooperation in climate change research.
