H2020-CIRC-02-2017/17 - Potential of efficient nutrient recovery from water

  1. 1. EPA Small Scale Study 2.1 - ‘Efficient Nutrient Recovery from Water’ Why the EPA commissioned this mapping study... Horizon 2020 EU Funding Opportunities Next generation water systems Background - Horizon 2020 CIRC-02-2016-2017: Water in the context of the circular economy...

One of the main areas of funding within Horizon 2020 is the "Societal Challenges" programme. This EPA Small Scale Study project (2015-W-SSS 2.1) is focused on opportunies for Irish researchers for participation in the climate action, environment, resource efficiency & raw materials Societal Challenge 5 (SC5). Specifically the project is concerned with the topic "CIRC-02- 2016-2017: Water in the Context of the Circular Economy"which will be issued in 2016/2017. This study maps research excellence & capacity in Ireland & the EU in the area of "Efficient Nutrient Recovery from Water". The outputs of the study will support researchers who wish to participate in consortia applying for funding under this topic in the forthcoming 2016/2017 calls. Total of 87 projects identified across the 12 databases searched. Total of 7 Horizon 2020 projects identified. Total of 27 FP7 projects identified. A hub of activity for both Research Institutes & Company involvement exists in 3 Countries in particular: Germany, Belgium, & the Netherlands. Taken together, the Research Institutes in each of Germany, Belgium & the Netherlands participated in 14 or more projects per Country (see map). In these Countries, companies are also involved in full scale & pilot / demonstration Phosphorus recovery plants. The work programme 2016-2017 outline that proposals should address one of the following issues: A ) Demonstrating the potential of efficient nutrient recovery from water (2016). B ) Towards the next generation of water systems & services large scale demonstration projects (2017).
