The role of the JIAP ChemWater has brought together expertise across the European Technology Platforms SusChem and WssTP and the networks of excellence EMH, ENMIX and ERIC to elaborate this Joint Implementation Action Plan – JIAP. Its aim is to foster innovation on sustainable materials, processes and emerging technologies development in chemical process and water industry. During its development a wide range of experts from industry, research, authorities and organisations have contributed to this document in several open workshops. The overall aim is to create synergies between chemical process and water industry while moving forward towards an integrated industrial water management.

The Joint Implementation Action Plan is dedicated to:

• Introduce the major action lines needed to move towards a sustainable integrated industrial water management

• Foster the link of these action lines to leading European initiatives, e.g. HORIZON2020, European Innovation Partnerships and Public Private Partnerships

• Contribute to the further programme development of these initiatives towards integrated industrial water management

• Strengthen synergies between chemical process industry and water industry in Europe

• Support Europe’s leading role in driving innovation on integrated industrial water management in the global market

• Help transferring innovation into other process industry sectors, such as pharmaceutics, white biotechnology, raw materials, food and others
