The European Interest Group (EIG) CONCERT-Japan Joint Call supports multilateral research projects between European and Japanese scientists on the topic of „Smart Water Management for Sustainable Society“.

The European Interest Group (EIG) CONCERT-Japan is an international joint initiative to support and enhance science, technology and innovation (STI) cooperation between European countries and Japan.

This call aims to contribute to the overall challenge of water sustainability by inviting research teams from both Europe and Japan to collaboratively explore new areas of smart water management. The collaborative activities will fall in line with the United Nations 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development. Specifically, the research scope tackles Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) including, but not limited to, Goal 6 “Clean Water and Sanitation”, Goal 9 “Industry, Innovation and Infrastructures”, Goal 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities” and Goal 17 “Partnership for the Goals”.

There is a pressing need at a global scale to develop innovative technologies and systems of water use which are resilient to various natural and social changes, widely applicable to our societies with local consideration, and simultaneously sustainable in the long term. This is what motivates this call for research proposals on the theme “Smart Water Management for Sustainable Society”.

Proposals from interested researchers are now accepted, starting from Monday, April 15th until Friday, June 14th this year.
