WE@EU is based on the ambition to create an
open European platform for EU excellence in water efficiency in urban water
management. This European platform will enable the participating clusters and
regions to bring together knowledge and innovation potential by collaborating
and mutually learning in a trans-national basis. This will enable to generate
an innovation friendly ecosystem where academia and business will work
together, in coordination with regional authorities and other stakeholders,
transforming knowledge into innovative products, services and skills in the
water efficiency sector. This partnership will thus enable to strength regional
capacities, which can unlock business opportunities among the participating
region and stimulate investments in R&D&I.
The regional research-driven clusters and
regions will share and exchange their ‘best practices’ by learning from their
respective regional research agendas. This will enable to develop a true
knowledge-driven partnership which will contribute to overcome the
fragmentation of the knowledge economy in Europe
and beyond towards the enlargement and consolidation of the European Research
Area. Moreover, the eco-innovative approach of WE@EU not only enables to boost
innovation as a measure to increase competitiveness, generate new skills and
reduce pressures on the environment, but also contributes to the implementation
of “Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe”.
The achievement of the WE@EU’s overall goal
will be driven by a number of specific objectives:
trans-national cooperation and integration between research-driven clusters as
well as mutual learning between regional actors.
Improving links and integration
between regional authorities, legal entities conducting research and the
regional business community.
Developing and implementing
joint action plans at the European level to increase regional economic
