WaterPiPP is related to the water societal challenge and intends to contribute to the Blueprint on the safeguard of Europe's Water Resources and to the European Innovation Partnership on Water-Efficient Europe (EIP Water).
The Blueprint proposes ways to improve the implementation of EU water policy, stimulating a better integration of policies and the focalization on the legal framework. It mentions the need for innovative solutions to deal with water challenges and the EIP Water stresses the importance of putting in place a policy framework addressing the existing barriers to innovation.
Innovation Union Flagship initiative aims at creating this favourable policy framework in which the EIP Water and its Strategic Implementation Plan are important components.
The vision behind the EIP Water is "To stimulate creative and innovative solutions that contribute significantly to tackling water challenges at European and global level, while stimulating sustainable economic growth and job creation".
