The Swedish platform for water (funded by Vinnova) is working to increase the Swedish participation in EU funded research projects. In their work, they connect and match organisations with similar research needs, to simplify the process of writing applications and form consortium.
As a member in LUWater you have the opportunity to report your interest and get in touch with other organisations with similar research agendas, with the possibility of forming a consortium or join an existing consortium. If you are interested in this opportunity, please send an email to Daniel Hellström with a short description of which area you are active or interested in and what your organisation could contribute with in an EU research project.
There are several active calls within Horizon 2020 (the eight EU Framework Programme). During 2018, additional calls will be active within the ninth EU Framework Programme. You find more information about H2020 and active calls here, https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/.
