Open Call for Start Ups on Water Scarcity Challenges


Water scarcity is one of the main challenges that the continent will have to face in the coming years. A third of Europe is already suffering water stress situations with drought in Greece, Portugal, or Spain, as well as difficulties in other countries like Germany, according to The European Environment Agency (EEA).

To bring innovative solutions for this reality, EIT Food will select a total of 30 startups – presented in Italy, Greece, and Spain – that seek to cope with water scarcity. The call, which will be held for the first time this year, is already open through this link and ends on the 7th of June.

The aim is to increase the competitiveness in Southern Europe through innovative solutions tackling water scarcity and drought, as well as its over-usage.
