On November 17 and 18, the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will host the third Water JPI Conference in Mülheim an der Ruhr. This will be done in the frame of the German Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The overarching motto will be ‘From Research into Practice: pollutants, pathogens and antimicrobial resistances in the water cycle’. With this focus, the conference underpins the recently started Water JPI ERA-Net Cofund AquaticPollutants and aims at connecting the various endeavours of the Water JPI in this research area.
The conference will bring together European and international water experts and researchers and strives to increase the participation of European institutions in activities of the Water JPI and the entire European Research Area. In frame of the conference, a European-wide competition called ‘Junior Water Jump - Digital solutions for control of pollutants, pathogens and antimicrobial resistances in the water cycle’ is foreseen to be taking place.
