This network of 23 scientists from across the globe, led by Prof Norbert Kreuzinger as Scientific Coordinator TU Vienna, established a critical mass of research and technological excellence, by integrating and sharing of knowledge, in addition to improving communication and networking between stakeholders and the scientific community. The network co-developed a number of significant outputs – Stakeholder Briefing, policy briefs and Infographics on CECs aiming to heighten awareness of CECs and their impact on our environment and health in the member states. The network worked to transfer this knowledge from ‘science to society’, via numerous outreach campaigns, press releases, policy briefs, infographics, and social media to the public, industrial sectors and policy makers and engaged in dissemination activities for achieving its primary goal of knowledge transfer.
Water JPI’s pilot KHCEC came to an end in February 2020. The Steering Committee of the KHCEC had a final evaluation meeting, held online on March 25, 2020 to bring forward recommendations for the future knowledge hub activities of Water JPI. The general opinion was that the KHCEC performed well in terms of generating outputs and organizing workshops to identify knowledge gaps and translate new knowledge for the interested parties in the area of contaminants of emerging concern. It is recommended that future knowledge hubs should be as inclusive as possible by engaging in collaboration with diverse stakeholders.
Some key outputs from the KHCEC network:
