The FP7-funded Project “STI International Cooperation Network for Central Asia Countries – IncoNet CA”, organised with success a “Workshop for the Future of Water-related Research Collaboration between the EU & Central Asia” on 11-12 April 2016, in Athens. 

The workshop managed to bring together scientists as well as policymakers from the EU, Central Asia and beyond with the following objectives:

  • To present the current water-related research activities and potential in Central Asia;
  • To discuss the state of affairs of international and national policies and programmes supporting water related research in Central Asia, including opportunities that the European Research Area can provide;
  • To showcase best practice examples of regional cooperation in the field of water;
  • To provide recommendations for the future of water related research collaboration between the EU and Central Asia in the fields of science, technology and innovation.

Through fruitful and productive discussion, the 35 participants of the workshop succeeded in identifying common challenges of water related research and water management in CA and the barriers that need to be eliminated in order to gain a productive international cooperation in this field. 

The conclusions of the workshop will be available soon.
