  "description": "<p>Research and innovation plays an important role in providing solutions to major water challenges. Over the past decades, EU&nbsp;Framework Programme&nbsp;research funding has dedicated over EUR 1 billion to water research and Horizon 2020 will continue&nbsp;to support fundamental and applied research to address this complex and cross-cutting societal challenge. Water is also a&nbsp;very important area for international research cooperation with non-EU countries for promoting sustainable development in&nbsp;the context of the on-going Sustainable Development Goals discussion.<br />\nWithin the context of the Environment (including climate change) Theme of the FP7 Cooperation Programme, a dedicated&nbsp;research topic on water systems and treatment technologies to cope with water shortages in urbanised areas in India was&nbsp;launched in 2011. SAPH PANI &ldquo;Enhancement of natural water systems and treatment methods for safe and sustainable water&nbsp;supply in India&rdquo; was selected for funding following the evaluation of that call. Since then a more strategic cooperation on&nbsp;water purification and wastewater reclamation, and reuse issues was built between the European Commission and the Indian&nbsp;Department of Science and Technology that gave rise to a joint coordinated call for proposals in 2012 and the emergence of&nbsp;a strong network of European and Indian researchers working together. In this context, SAPH PANI could be considered as&nbsp;a precursor of such cooperation.<br />\nThis book summarises the key achievement of the SAPH PANI EU funded project.</p>",
