ACTUAL PROJECT CALLS - btopkaya - 03-06-2018

Dear colleagues,

Herewith I want to open the “Exceed-Swindon water forum” for discussions, comments and contributions.
The main theme is the announcement of two actual Project Calls related to water management. As you can see from the info below the topics of the Calls match very well with the topics of Swindon Network.
There are pros and conts of these calls.
Short info about these two Project Calls are given below. Especially the PRIMA Call seems to be suitable for all MENA-Swindon countries.
The Deadline for submitting of a short proposal is End of March-Mid April.
Interested colleagues can contact potential partners using this forum.
I wish us all  TOI, TOI, TOI (in German)
Kind regards
Bülent Topkaya

Main themes:

Strengthening Socio-economic Approaches to Water Management; and  
Supporting Tools for Sustainable Integrative Management of water Resources.
 
The themes match very well with the aims of Exceed-Swindon.
Main handicap is the limitation of the participating countries: From Swindon Network can only Egypt and Tunisia apply. Two EU member states are necessary (Germany not included)
