The key objective of the second meeting of the Steering Group of the EIP on Water is to adopt the Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP). This will signal the start of the operational phase of the EIP on Water. The SIP has been developed by the Task Force, on the basis of the discussions of the Steering Group in its first meeting.
The overall objective of the EIP on Water is to support and facilitate the development of innovative solutions to deal with the many water-related challenges Europe and the world are facing, as well as to support economic growth by bringing such solutions to the market. At the same time, innovations are considered to be an important tool to develop adequate and state of the art European water policy.
