Acquatic pollutants project born from the collaboration between JPI Water, JPI Oceans and JPI AMR and 32 partners, including Arpa Sicilia.
The call will support research and innovation projects that establish integrated and cross-sectoral approaches for risk-management combining the research areas of contaminants of emerging concerns (CECs), pathogens and antimicrobial resistance. The whole water cycle, from the source through the river basins and eventually to the estuaries and oceans, has to be considered. 26 countries are pooling resources of about 22 M€ to implement the joint transnational call for research and innovation projects.
The call is divided into 3 themes with several subthemes. Research & innovation proposals are invited to respond to at least one of the following themes:
Measuring – Environmental behaviour of contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in aquatic ecosystems
Evaluating – Risk assessment and management of CECs, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria from aquatic ecosystems (inland, coastal and marine) to human health and environment
Taking Actions – Strategies to reduce CECs, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in aquatic ecosystems (inland, coastal and marine).
