EIT Manufacturing and three other EIT Innovation Communities, EIT Raw Materials, EIT Food & EIT Climate,  have joined forces on finding innovative solutions for water scarcity in Southern Europe.

The project has resulted in an impressive body of knowledge and many concrete ideas and solutions on how to address this critical challenge.

Now, we want to share this with you to discuss the next steps and how to make best use of the results to benefit of the local communities and organisations.  Join us for our online Water Academies delivered to you in the local languages with simultaneous intepretations in English.
