International workshops foreseen within the PAVITR project are a very good and enriching tool to strength the India-EU cooperation. The workshops are designed to be the neededplatform to bring together relevant stakeholders, including industry partners, local authorities,water users, research centres and communities, and enhance the project results uptake.
In this occasion, the workshop main aim has been gathering representatives from the seven sister projects currently funded under the Indo-Euro Water Technology Programme, call SC5-12-2018 EU-India water co-operation (LOTUS, PANIWATER, INDIA-H2O, PAVITRAGANGA, SARASWATI 2.0, SPRING and PAVITR) to better know each other, gain knowledge on others' work and objectives, check potential synergies, etc. and establish acollaboration path (i.e., activities of common interest in which we could potentially collaboratein the future: joint meetings or dissemination and capacity building activities, demo sites replicability potential in other locations, stakeholders gathering and mobilisation, etc.).
Not only the project representatives have attended the workshop, but also the DST Project Advisor and EC Project Officer, as well as representatives of the existing running EC Booster for LOTUS, PANIWATER and INDIA-H2O projects.During the workshop, very enriching discussions took place about the different possibilities of collaboration in order to increase the impact of the seven India-EU projects as much as possible,especially at Indian level, as well as to optimise the project resources as much as possible.
