WRc–Led Consortium Appointed to European Commission Freshwater Policy Framework

October 30, 2012 Categories: Latest News

A consortium of European research organisations and consultancies led by WRc has been appointed to a European Commission framework providing services for the development and implementation of EU freshwater policies. 

Over the next 4 years, the WRc consortium will bid for service contracts let through this framework to provide independent advice on: 

  • the Common Implementation Strategy (CIS) of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and Floods Directive;
  • compliance checking for EU water legislation implementation;
  • interlinkages between WFD implementation and other pieces of EU water legislation;
  • integration of water policy into other EU policy areas;
  • the development of the Water Information System for Europe;
  • new developments following the EU “Blueprint for Water”. 

This builds on WRc’s support to the Commission over the past 12 years with regards to WFD implementation.
