The Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance have pre-announced a joint transitional call for research and innovation projects on the risks posed to human health and the environment from pollutants and pathogens in water resources. The call will look for projects that take cross-sectoral integrated approaches to risk-management and which evaluate the entire water cycle.
There will be three call themes:
- Measuring – Environmental behaviour of contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in aquatic ecosystems
- Evaluating – Risk assessment and management of CECs, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria from aquatic ecosystems (inland and marine) to human health and environment
- Taking Actions – Strategies to reduce CECs, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in aquatic ecosystems (inland and marine)
The full pre-announcement is available through the link. A full call will be announced on 17 February 2020.
