Water Innovation Europe - 2020 Edition
A Water-Smart Society for a European Green Deal
In 2050, Europe aims to be the world’s first climate-neutral continent implementing the European Green Deal: an ambitious package of measures to deeply transform our economy and society. As pollution does not stop at our boundaries and is not sectoral, we also need to change our method for this new growth strategy. 25% of the whole European budget will have to contribute to the ecological transition.
As water is a cross-sectoral and strategic resource, the green deal is an opportunity for the European Union to invest in innovative solutions to achieve a Water Smart Society. Research and innovation along the full value chain in the water sector can:
- Encourage resource efficiency and competitiveness of our industry
- Secure our agriculture
- Protect and restore our biodiversity
- Make concrete a zero-pollution strategy
Water Europe is, therefore, ready to work collectively with the European commission and citizens, take its societal responsibility, look what is technological achievable and economically feasible to make the green deal a success!
