Finding innovative solutions for water scarcity in Southern Europe

A series of activities will address real challenges around water scarcity, boosting entrepreneurship (challenge labs, water academy…), skills capacity building for professionals and raising awareness among different actors will be developed as a joint effort between EIT Food, EIT Raw Materials, EIT Climate and EIT Manufacturing KICs in southern Europe covering RIS targeted countries in this area. Competitions for finding the best solutions will be part of the activity, together with focused training on the main aspects related with agriculture, food production and industry in water scarcity conditions, provided by business experts and relevant stakeholders from RIS regions, including policy experts, scientists, industry, agronomists, food technologists. This Cross-KIC program has been launched to complement RIS specific activities in an area (Water Scarcity) where join efforts and work can be effective to minimize the gap in between research, business and education in southern RIS countries.
