Webinar - Sustainable Urban Global Initiative Food-Energy-Water Nexus

Innoviris participates in the new ERA NET COFUND program  entitled: “Sustainable Urban Global Initiative Food-Energy-Water Nexus” ( acronym: EN SUGI).

This program was established by the Belmont Forum and the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe in order to bring together the fragmented research and innovation expertise across the globe to find innovative new solutions to the Food-Energy-Water (FEW) Nexus challenge. EN SUGI aims to develop more resilient, applied urban solutions that bring research and innovation together from across the globe, and which will be beneficial to a much wider range of global markets.

This joint call for proposals will be launched in December 2016 (tbc) and gathers 22 national funding agencies from European countries and 5 funding agencies from USA, Mexico, Taiwan, Japan, Quatar and Argentina. 

Proposed challenge driven topics for projects are: 

  • Theme 1: Robust Knowledge, Indicators and Assessments

  • Theme 2: Multi-level Governance and Management of the Food-Energy-Water Nexus

  • Theme 3: Managing Potential Strategies and Solutions to address emerging Risk and Tradeoffs at the intersection of Urbanization and the FEW Nexus

The future collaborative projects will bring together universities, private companies, municipalities and  practitioners involved in sustainable urban issues at an international level.

The consortium of Belmont Forum and JPI Urban Europe is pleased to invite you to participate in the first  webinar whose main objective is to inform potential applicants. The second objective is to facilitate match-making and partner search between international partners.

The webinar will be organized by our American partner and will last 2 hours.
