PEER and Euraqua renew partnership

22 January 2018, Water, PEER

On January the 23rd PEER and Euraqua (the European Network of Freshwater Research Organisations) renewed their existing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) until January 1st 2021. The new agreement further develops collaboration in water and environmental research and policies. The agreement facilitates collaboration of mutual interest for both networks, including research project implementation, document production, facilities sharing and organizing common events.

Both networks share particular interest in EC consultations and in the preparation of relevant position papers influencing the formulation of European water research programmes and policies.
Both networks actively exchange information and report on relevant developments and try to stimulate collaboration.

Ideas for collaboration can be initiated by any member of both networks and will be launched case by case on a project basis. Researchers within the PEER institutes interested in collaboration with PEER partners are welcome to put forth suggestions.
