AquaticPollutants (“Risks posed to human health and the environment by pollutants and pathogens present in water resources”) is a joint project by three JPIs (Water JPI, JPI Oceans and JPI AMR). Its theme is the behaviour of new and lesser-known pollutants and pathogens in the environment, the development of antimicrobial resistance related to these pollutants and pathogens in freshwater and seawater environments, and their impact on human health and the health of ecosystems.
AquaticPollutants started in January 2020. The ERA-NET Cofund project, funded by 26 countries, is supported by the European Commission in the framework of the Horizon 2020 programme during 2020–2024. 32 research funding organisations participate in the AquaticPollutants project. The countries outside Europe include Brazil, Israel, South Africa, Taiwan and Tunisia.
A funding call was organised for the AquaticPollutants project in 2020. The call text was published on 17 February 2020 on the AquaticPollutants website, where also the applications will be submitted. The closing date for the first stage of the call is 18 May 2020. The call has two stages. The Academy of Finland’s Research Council for Biosciences, Health and Environment will co-fund the call with 850,000 euros.
