Abstract

Following wide-ranging consultation, an action plan has been drafted to identify priority areas for RTD in sustainable management and quality of water within the Fifth Framework Programme. The aims of the task force ''Environment-Water'' were to define water research priorities; to reinforce the coordination between relevant European, national and private research activities; and to stimulate innovation in water research. Priorities for research and innovation in freshwater management were grouped into four main areas to reflect the concerns of European Union citizens. These priorities are combating pollution, rational use of water, combating chronic water deficits and prevention and management of crisis situations.
