News IWRM-Net: a developing community to face challenging water issues

IWRM-Net is currently composed of 20 partners from 14 members states. However, at the beginning of the project 17 partners were onboard to implement research activities. IWRM-Net network is a developing community willing to set a new partnership in the different phases of its activities: identification of research needs, implementation and follow up of calls, transfer of scientific results
to the targeted audience.

Project IWRM-Net (2006-2010) is an ERA-NET project funded by the European Commission
(EC). IWRM-Net’s concern is Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) research in the specific context of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) implementation. ERA-NET is short for
European Research Area Network, a specific kind of project funded by the EC. The EC’s aim is to support European research managers in coordinating their efforts and implementing transnational and regional research activities together. While research is one output from ERA-NET projects, the
EC’s funding is used to create the networks of research managers and not for the research itself.
