H2020 SC5 08-2018 - Innovative nature-based solutions for hydro-meteorological risk reduction

  1. 1. EU Research Excellence and Capacity for Horizon 2020 Topic SC5-08-2017 Innovative nature-based solutions for hydro-meteorological risk reduction Overview of Topic SC5-08-2017 Innovative nature-based solutions for hydro-meteorological risk reduction Economic damage costs from extreme hydro-meteorological events are increasing throughout Europe. The H2020 topic SC5-08-2017 invites proposals from consortia to develop nature base solutions for hydro- meteorological risk reduction. The projects should develop, demonstrate and deploy innovative systemic and yet locally attuned nature-based solutions, including green and blue infrastructure and ecosystem-based management approaches, in rural and natural areas, including particularly sensitive ones such as mountainous and coastal areas, for hydro- meteorological risk reduction at watershed/landscape scale. Methodology Stage 1: Mapping of research projects: The CORDIS database was searched using pre-selected keywords across the full suite of FP7 and Horizon 2020 programmes and relevant projects identified Stage 2: Mapping of key Institutes to receive water research funding: The research projects from Stage 1 were comprehensively searched to discern whether there was evidence of research institutes involved in multiple research projects. The top performing institutes involved in multiple projects were identified. Stage 3: Analysis of “networking” groups: A range of EU networking groups in the water research area were analysed as part of Stage 3 . Participants in networks which were also “top performing institutes” from Stage 2 were identified. Key findings Research Institutes which were involved in most FP7 and H2020 projects in subject areas relevant to Topic H2020-SC5-08-2017 STICHTING DELTARES, NETHERLANDS # * CETAQUA, CENTRO TECNOLOGICO DEL AGUA, FUNDACIÓN PRIVADA SPAIN # * THE UNIVERSITY OF EXETER, UNITED KINGDOM # POTSDAM INSTITUT FUER KLIMAFOLGENFORSCHUNG, GERMANY UNITED NATIONS EDUCATIONAL, SCIENTIFIC AND CULTURAL ORGANIZATION –UNESCO # NATIONAL TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF ATHENS, GREECE MIDDLESEX UNIVERSITY HIGHER EDUCATION CORPORATION, UNITED KINGDOM TECHNISCHE UNIVERSITEIT DELFT, NETHERLANDS CENTRO EURO-MEDITERRANEO SUI CAMBIAMENTI CLIMATICI SCARL, ITALY DHI, DENMARK # STIFTELSEN SINTEF, NORWAY # # Member of Water Supply and Sanitation Technology Platform *Member of relevant Action Group on EIP on Water Who should participate in this SC5-08-2017 call? • Research organisations with expertise in ecology, civil engineering hydrology, planning, social sciences • SMEs with novel nature based technologies (green and blue infrastructure) for hydro-meteorological risk reduction • Companies with experience in designing and delivering ecosystem sensitive solutions to avoid flooding, drought, storm surges, etc • Local authorities seeking to future proof cities from the effects of extreme hydro-meteorological events Networks and Infrastructures in the area of SC5-08-2017 • Wastewater Supply and Sanitation Technology Platform • Managing Hydroclimatic Extreme Events • Green Infrastructure • Ecosystem Services • European Innovation Platform on Water • NatureWAT - Nature-based technologies for innovation in water management (AG 228) • ESE - Ecosystem Services for Europe (AG052) • EXPEER - Distributed Infrastructure for EXPErimentation in Ecosystem Research This study has been conducted on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency by Author: Xavier Dubuisson Eng.
