FUTURE4PRIMA Showcases Collaborative Opportunities at Water4All Kick-off in Madrid

Madrid – Today, at the kick-off meeting for the first joint call of the Water4All partnership, PRIMA Project Officer Marco Orlando highlighted the water-related scientific aspects and challenges the PRIMA programme addresses, as well as the funding opportunities it provides to researchers from the Euro-Med region.

The session in which Mr. Orlando intervened, entitled “Synergies between Partnerships and Missions,” was part of a two-day event taking place on April 23rd and 24th, 2024 in Madrid. It gathered Water4All project coordinators, experts, stakeholders, and representatives from various Horizon Europe Partnerships and Missions to discuss, among other things, collaboration and innovation in water resources management.

The session underscored the critical role of integrated approaches and cross-sector collaboration in tackling pressing water management challenges in Europe, the Mediterranean and beyond. As climate conditions evolve, such synergies will be paramount in fostering resilience and sustainability within the region’s water sector.

In addition to outlining PRIMA’s ongoing efforts, Orlando introduced the FUTURE4PRIMA project and opportunities for synergies offered by this project, namely through its F4P Stakeholder board which will gather other EU partnerships and missions, demonstrating a proactive approach to collaborative research and innovation. The next FUTURE4PRIMA Stakeholder Board meeting is scheduled in December 2024 in Barcelona to discuss further and expand on the partnerships and collaborative strategies introduced in Madrid.
