The project is aimed at supporting integration of ACC and MS research teams in ERA through facilitating participation of ACC research organizations in FP projects in the area Water cycle including soil-related aspects and actively support implementation of the workprogramme of sub-priority 1.6.3.The goals will be achieved through: development of a multifunctional, internet-based information service aimed as a "one-stop-shop" for dissemination and exchange of information on water research conducted by ACC and MS organizations and for project dissemination, database of ACC organizations incl. SMEs active in water research, structured for FP projects development needs and combined with a dedicated partner search engine accessible through the service web page; 3day event comprising 3 concurrent workshops with panel sessions addressing 3 topics from the area Water Cycle including soil related aspects: hydrology and climate change, ecological impact of global change, soil functioning and water quality, integrated management strategies and mitigation technologies. Specific topics and number of panel sessions will be tailored to the 4 call of priority 184.108.40.206.The event is aimed at training ACC researchers in the strategy of developing proposals (especially IP/NoE) with ACC potential integrated as contribution and forming ACC/MS Topical Expert Groups as project subconsortia capable to contribute to and/or develop FP proposals on selected panel sessions topics.Workshops participants will be 117 representatives of ACC organizations selected from the proposed database. Moderators will be selected 9 ACC and 9 MS researchers - recognized European leaders in water research.
Project direct outcomes:
an internet service and ACC organizations database are designed as sustainable mechanisms and will be maintained upon project completion together with the Expert Groups and the dedicated web pages set-up for them as platform to sustain ACC/MS Groups integration.
