ACQUEAU Autumn call is now open

date of publication > 17-September-2013

The ACQUEAU Autumn call is now open. The deadline for the submission of a project outline for this call is 1 October 2013. ACQUEAU is the EUREKA Cluster for water technologies, allowing small companies and universities across Europe to collaborate in research projects with major companies in the sector. This call will allow companies to collaborate on a broader range of water technologies and serves as a perfect opportunity to collaborate with ACQUEAU’s newest participating country, Canada.

Potential applicants for funding through ACQUEAU will need to submit a project outline (PO) by the 1st of October. The project outline is a document requesting work plans, preliminary budget and contact information from organisations partnering in a potential project. Following the submission of the project outline a full project proposal, or FPP, requesting more in-depth information on the project’s set-up will need to be submitted by 10 January 2013. The PO submission template and letter of intent are available on the ACQUEAU call page.


It is important to contact your EUREKA National Project Coordinator and the ACQUEAU office before submitting a project outline, and it is also recommended to read both the ACQUEAU blue book and handbook before contacting them.Basic conditions to participate in an ACQUEAU project are quite simple as there are only three requirements. Generally, ACQUEAU calls have a theme that your project must fall under, but this call is truly open to any project as long as it is in line with the ACQUEAU blue book. The proposed project must have at least two partners from at least two different countries taking part in ACQUEAU. Lastly, the consortium should be well balanced, meaning that no participant or country will be required to invest more than 70% of the total project costs. More precisions can be found in the ACQUEAU handbook.

Additionally, don't forget to register to attend the second annual ACQUEAU workshop. Find partners, collborate and parcipate in the technical conferences during the two day event.

For more information, please contact Jesus Ciurana, ACQUEAU Technical Officer.
